About EdResearch For Action

Practical, research-based insights for education leaders

Researchers struggle to generate real impact and education leaders lack the guidance and support they need to turn research into action. EdResearch for Action – a joint initiative of the Annenberg Institute at Brown University and Results for America – brings together education leaders, policymakers, and researchers to partner on effective, evidence-based strategies for improving schools. We believe that this work is complex, and that the path to better opportunities and outcomes for learners requires a new form of collaboration.
