Researchers to study how school leaders use data to inform decisions
from THE Journal
The United States Department of Education has awarded $5 million to three universities to find out how (or whether) school and district leaders use research to inform their decision making. The grant will fund the creation of a new center — dubbed the National Center for Research in Policy and Practice — whose aim is to study how research is currently used in schools and in what circumstances research is used to inform decisions. It will also look to find ways that education-related research "could be made more meaningful for educational leaders through long-term partnerships between researchers and practitioners."
