Center on Education Policy Roundtable: Making Research More Useful in Policy and in the Classroom
Thursday, April 30, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET
Join the William T. Grant Foundation and the Center on Education Policy for a discussion about the use of research-based evidence to inform education policy and practice. The discussion among national education leaders will cover research partnerships at the state and local levels, the role of intermediaries, putting research evidence in context, and creating the conditions that allow educators to access the right research at the right time.
Capitol Hill Forum: The Forgotten Half: Pathways to Success for America’s Youth and Young Families
Friday, May 1, 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET
Twenty-five years after the The Forgotten Half alerted us to the struggles of young people who did not attend college, James Rosenbaum and colleagues examine the circumstances of the “new forgotten half”: youth who attend college but drop out before attaining a credential.
Join us for a discussion of the challenges facing students and the institutions that serve them, and learn more about strategies to help the new forgotten half get ahead and achieve their potential.
