MDRC’s William Corrin Featured in September 16 Virtual Forum on Evidence-Based Education Policy


How can researchers make their work more valuable and accessible to practitioners and policymakers? What changes do we need to see in the research world for evidence-based policy to realize its potential?

On September 16 at 2 pm (ET), Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy and FutureEd will convene a virtual forum — “Common Sense: What’s Missing from Evidence-Based Education Policy?” — to discuss these questions and explore Common-Sense Evidence: The Education Leader’s Guide to Using Data and Research, a new book providing a guide to helping education leaders use data and research to improve outcomes.

The forum will feature:

  • Emily Hanford, senior correspondent, APM Reports
  • William Corrin, director, K-12 Education Policy Area, MDRC
  • Nora Gordon, associate professor, McCourt School of Public Policy and author of Common-Sense Evidence
  • Thomas Toch, director, FutureEd (moderator)

Registration for the event is free.
