Institute For Policy Research

The Consortium for Policy Research on Education (CPRE) brings together education experts from renowned research institutions such as the University of California, Berkeley, Harvard University, Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Business School.
CPRE is widely regarded as a leading university research organization that focuses on educational policy evaluation around the world. Since then, the CPRE has studied policy programmes to improve primary and secondary education and the impact of policies and programmes designed to continue this long tradition by conducting rigorous research and evaluation aimed at improving education in order to increase effectiveness and equal opportunities in access. As a government-funded research and development center for excellence in education and policy research, CPre was established in 2004 as part of the U.S. Department of Education.
We focus on justice and care deeply about how historically underserved and neglected student groups are uniquely affected by programs and policies. We are impartial and independent in our efforts to improve schools and improve social and economic opportunities for our youth, and we care deeply about the communities in which we work and how uniquely they are influenced by both programs and policies.
The application of the strictest and most systematic techniques available and the adaptation of our methods to the specific requirements of each individual project are common to all our work. In the face of the constantly changing conditions that accompany real research conditions, we remain reflective and adaptable.
We are also committed to disseminating our findings to a broad audience and disseminating our knowledge base to practitioners, policy makers and researchers. Ultimately, our goal is to ask informed questions and use sophisticated analytical tools to determine whether policy programs are meeting their intended objectives and working.
