EdInsights is devoted to student success and the public benefits of education.
Our mission is to inform and improve policymaking and practice for K-12 education, community colleges, and public universities. We do this through policy research, program evaluation, and capacity building. We focus on issues relevant to California and the nation. EdInsights is located in the state capital at California State University, Sacramento.
EdInsights helps educators and policymakers create better, more equitable experiences and outcomes for students in three primary ways:
EdInsights conducts rigorous research, develops new insights, and applies
this knowledge to make sense of the complex forces and ideas at work in
education. We support good decisions for states, systems, institutions, and
schools by clarifying options and teasing out implications grounded in
research, evaluation, and analysis. We make information accessible to all
who can use it to advance student success.
The systems that shape student success involve many individuals,
institutions, and regions. EdInsights brings people together to facilitate
learning, information sharing, and strategic action. In this role, we identify
gaps and opportunities to improve policy and practice across systems.
EdInsights provides expertise and assistance through all stages of education
policy and practice development—from inception to implementation,
evaluation to refinement.
