The Education Redesign Lab is working to disseminate its actionable research and policy insights to key policymakers through individual outreach, media outreach, speaking engagements, and partnerships with policymaking organizations. We also collaborate with national partners to identify and address state and local policy and regulatory barriers and opportunities in a small number of states.
