Core Strategies

LAERI engages in a suite of inter-related activities to realize its mission by:

  • Communicating about relevant research with educational leaders and practitioners
  • Assembling and maintaining a longitudinal archive of administrative and survey data, with the longer-term goal of incorporating financial data and data from other sources (e.g., early childhood, health, social welfare, workforce development, and criminal justice)
  • Identifying needs, promising practices, and crucial points of intervention by collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data, with the longer-term goal of conducting a targeted set of intervention and evaluation studies
