The Woodrow Wilson Foundation’s policy agenda focuses on the development of intellectual capital to meet national challenges.
Woodrow Wilson’s current policy work aims to improve the way teachers are prepared, developed, and deployed—a practical, targeted focus that enables the Foundation to turn recommendations into results. The goal is to produce usable research that can inform education policy, improve practice, and build greater support and understanding among opinion leaders and the general public. From time to time, Foundation staff also publish perspectives on current education issues.
The Foundation also acknowledges the efforts of and seeks to build partnerships with a number of other researchers and organizations working today in education policy.
Previous policy-related Woodrow Wilson projects have addressed such subjects as mathematical literacy, the senior year of high school, diversity in U.S. doctoral programs, and ways to make Ph.D. programs more responsive to contemporary workforce needs.
