SRI Education programs help identify trends, understand outcomes and guide policy and practice. We provide research-based solutions to challenges posed by rapid social, technological and economic change. Our clients include U.S. and California Departments of Education, the National Science Foundation, state governments and major foundations and corporations.

Teams from our three major centers are tailored to each assignment. They may include such experts as economists, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, cognitive and behavioral psychologists, statisticians, computer scientists and education researchers.

Center for Technology in Learning: To address how technology can enhance the quality of learning for all students, researchers evaluate large-scale educational innovations and design assessments to enhance teaching and learning. The Center also develops tools to help students master complex ideas, enhances online learning communities and offers strategic learning consulting services.

Center for Education Policy evaluates the impact of a variety of educational programs, including improvement efforts for traditionally underrepresented students, models for education reform, initiatives aimed at raising teacher quality and efforts to improve adult education. Research identifies which factors improve education, and this information is used to inform policymakers.

Center for Learning and Development focuses on children, youth and families facing challenges from economic disadvantage, disability, teenage parenthood, neighborhood decay and other risk factors. Center researchers examine the impact and effectiveness of federal, state and local policies and programs, including community servicesspecial education and disability policiesschool partnerships and early childhood programs.
