Finding what matters.

As states grapple to implement new, rigorous standards, there is an overwhelming amount of information to be found. Whether you’re a teacher, parent, or policymaker – we can help you make sense of what’s available and what’s important. Previous research on standards implementation chronicled successes and failures, but not in real-time, and not in ways that policymakers and practitioners could respond to in order to improve their systems. We hope to foster conversations through which states and districts can share ideas and strategies on standards implementation—a forum where failures as well as successes are highlighted in ways that allow participants to learn from each other, and devise concrete action steps.
