Education Policy

The IEA promotes equity focused research-based education policy

What Is Education Policy?

  • Inform local, state, and national education policy discussions.
  • Build capacity among policymakers, educators, and public education advocates for equity focused evidence-based education reform.
  • Extend our network of advocates who share an interest in addressing issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in public schools.
  • Performance Evaluation Policy Guidance
