Our mission is to help K-12 school systems make evidence-based decisions about the effectiveness of their programs, policies, and personnel. We partner with, and provide research services to school districts, research organizations, publishers, and state and federal agencies—including Regional Education Laboratories and the US Department of Education—to determine the effectiveness of programs. We are committed to providing independent, objective evidence while remaining sensitive to the unique context of the research site.
Empirical Education is an advocate for using evidence in policy decisions. We provide information and recommendations to trade organizations, policy institutes, foundations, and government entities that make or influence policy and practices in education.
