ABOUT CPRE The Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE) unites seven of the nation’s top research institutions in an exciting venture to improve student learning through research on policy, finance, school reform, and school governance. The members of CPRE are the University of Pennsylvania, Teachers College Columbia University, Harvard University, Stanford University, the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Northwestern University. CPRE is currently examining how alternative approaches to reform— such as new accountability policies, teacher compensation, whole-school reform approaches, and efforts to contract out instructional services— address issues of coherence, incentives, and capacity. To learn more about CPRE, visit our web site at www.cpre.org or call (215) 573-0700, and then press 0 for assistance. CPRE Research Report Series Research Reports are issued by CPRE to facilitate the exchange of ideas among policymakers, practitioners, and researchers who share an interest in education policy. The views expressed in the reports are those of individual authors, and not necessarily shared by CPRE or its institutional partners.
