We publish policy briefs that critique extant policy, document the need for new policies, or offer a new framework for understanding complex issues that impact communities, schools, and individuals. Briefs could identify educational issues or political, social, or economic questions pertaining to education; recognize stakeholders’ interests and power; explore contradictions, tensions, or (un)intended consequences; and present research findings that relate to the issue. All briefs should include policy recommendations. Our policy briefs are a resource for researchers, policy-makers, practitioners, and community groups.
Policy briefs should be between 1,500 and 3,000 words.
