Educators and policymakers in Kansas and Missouri now have a new resource to turn to for research and technical advice. The U.S. Department of Education has added a central location to its network of Regional Educational Laboratories. This central location will serve seven states, including Kansas and Missouri.
Research priorities include educator effectiveness and achievement gaps as well as college and career readiness.
Located in Colorado, the new laboratory serves that state, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming in addition to our local two-state area.
