Policy and Public Understanding
Good policies make a big difference for students.
Through advocacy, research and strategic communications, we aim to strengthen policies that can help foster high-quality teaching, professional development and equitable school practices.
We support organizations that elevate the influence of teachers and the students and families they serve to advocate for more equitable education policies at the local, state and federal level. We also invest in research to assess the impact of professional learning, teacher preparation and high-quality instructional materials aligned to college- and career-ready standards.
Our partners in these areas help us understand what is making a meaningful impact on student outcomes and build greater demand among policymakers, educators and parents for these activities.
