We Work In
High-quality education is the engine of social mobility and should be accessible to learners of all ages. But too many students lack access to good public schools, which affects their ability to pursue higher learning. And about 40 percent of students at colleges and universities don’t get a degree within six years — and then often face crippling debt.
In order to determine the best ways to support student success from kindergarten onward, more research is needed. We work to identify and scale the most effective practices for all learners, regardless of race or economic circumstances. In K-12, we bring together local school leaders and university researchers to tailor promising innovations in curriculum. And in higher education, we study obstacles to student success and support the development of policies that can help break down barriers.
