Research & Evaluation

PREL conducts research and evaluates education programs to determine what works in the field. We then use the findings to help enhance education outcomes for schools, teachers, families, and children. Finally, we provide education policy makers, researchers, school systems, program developers, and practitioners with information to make informed decisions about education policies, programs, and practices.
