We are building an engine for scalable impact in education.
Education research has a serious problem when it comes to translating ideas into practices. Concepts that are often untested at scale become fads that educators are required to implement in their classrooms without proper training, and students end up suffering the consequences. Promising research is left in the dust when the “Next Big Thing” comes along and policy makers repeat the cycle.
Our mission at PERTS is to improve the equity of learning outcomes by bridging the gap between cutting-edge research and implementation practices. We believe that properly scaling educational research can empower schools to reduce inequity and create better experiences for students and teachers.
We bridge the gap between research and practice by translating research findings into practical solutions. These solutions can be quickly implemented to serve large numbers of historically underserved students.
While supporting the dissemination of research-based innovations, PERTS gathers essential data on their outcomes. That data teaches us how to faithfully and sustainably grow the reach of these innovations and maximize their impact on educational equity.
