The 2019 School Access and Quality Summit will convene social science researchers and K-12 practitioners for a thoughtful discussion on how to measure and improve school performance.

Participants will attend conference sessions, workshops, and group activities that explore some of the most pressing questions around school quality: what is the best way to measure school quality? What measures do parents and students value most? How can schools and districts communicate school quality to the public?

 

Through these conversations, we hope to spark long-term partnerships and prompt continuous interaction between rigorous research and policy design, implementation, and evaluation.
