Systematically considering programs, practices, and policies that may move the needle in some of these important areas is the next frontier of research if we want to address inequality for this fast growing group of students.
We want to know what it takes to get research evidence used and what happens when it is used.
We are collaborating with our friends at the Russell Sage Foundation to sponsor a research grants competition on educational inequality that will support a racially and ethnically diverse cadre of early-career scholars.
Despite widespread efforts by intermediaries to shape education by conveying research to policymakers, a recent study finds that very few of these policymakers report using research when making decisions. As other studies have found instances where research can shape policy and practice in a variety ways, what explains this contradiction? And what does it mean for efforts to improve the use of research evidence?
Five new research grants will build stronger theory and empirical evidence in our focus areas of reducing inequality and the use of research evidence.
In this video, Program Officer Vivian Louie leads a discussion and Q&A on strategies for applicants to develop strong letters of inquiry for research grants in our reducing inequality focus area. The goal of this webinar is for potential applicants to gain a better understanding of our interests and develop strong letters of inquiry, specifically […]
