The nation needs greater capacity to conduct high-quality, policy-relevant research that will yield findings that can be used to make smart investments in its youth.
At the Center for Education Data and Research (CEDR), we address this need through a focused program of study on the complex relationships between education and social service policies or practices and key education outcomes.
Outcomes-based research, particularly student outcomes,
is a hallmark of our work at CEDR.
Through our research, CEDR addresses the disjuncture that exists between research, policy, and practice by conducting high-quality research and broadly disseminating it to give policymakers the hard evidence they need to make good choices for children.
