Research on Education Strategies to
Advance Recovery and Turnaround
In education, nearly all the action in policy and program design happens at the state and local levels. And, compared to local-level studies, state-level studies are attractive because they offer large samples of students, teachers, and schools and opportunities to look at a policy or program across different types of students and schools. However, many “statewide” policies are actually implemented by the school district, and school districts make adjustments for their own context.
