From cradle through career, education programs exist to help children and youth learn, grow, and succeed in school and in life. But how do decision makers know which interventions work? How can their investments address institutional and systemic inequalities in education?
Ford School faculty and staff use rigorous analytical methods to understand which policies, programs, and practices improve educational outcomes—and which do not. They use this data to partner with and empower community stakeholders, government agencies, and policymakers across the country to make informed decisions and create better results for students. And our faculty trains the next generation of education policy professionals to help create a brighter future.
