Major New Research Alliance to Study Improvement in City Schools

NYU to Host New Center; Executive Director Appointed; Initial Funding Secured from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Ford Foundation

Taking a major new step to advance school improvement in New York, stakeholders from across the city have formed the Research Alliance for New York City Schools at New York University, a non-partisan applied research center that is independent of city government and the Department of Education. Utilizing recent advances in education science and drawing on the expertise of the city’s and the nation’s top researchers, the Research Alliance hopes to be a source of valid and reliable evidence both about the challenges of providing a high quality education for all students and about the effectiveness of promising strategies aimed at addressing those challenges.

Housed within NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, the Research Alliance will have close academic connections to other NYU schools - the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Robert F. Wagner G 500
