Education Policy Analytics Lab

Federal, State, and Local Education Policy

In recent years, federal, state, and local educational policy has increased its influence on educator workforce development, school governance, relationships among educational stakeholders, and instructional and school building practices. Policy also affects students’ academic, social-emotional, and behavioral development. Our work aims to inform the design and implementation of educational policies that ultimately promote high quality and equitable learning for all students.
