Research & Reports
Education Commission of the States is the trusted source for comprehensive knowledge and resources on hundreds of education policy issues.
This Promising Practices report explores the civic learning and engagement efforts of Massachusetts’ public higher education system in five areas: vision of Preparing Citizens as a core educational commitment, development of a state higher education Policy on Civic Learning, creation of civic engagement and service-learning course designations, progress in statewide assessment accountability for civic learning and policies to align civic learning across the K-16 education continuum.
This special report encourages increased intentionality of policy assessment and development through exploring equity-minded questions across four key state policy levers: teaching and leading, learning and transitioning, measuring and improving, and financing.
While covering the full spectrum of education policy, Education Commission of the States dives deeply into key issues impacting all states.
Since 2015, Education Commission of the States' policy team supported 10 states in redesigning key aspects of their state financial aid programs. These projects ranged from data and policy analysis to on-the-ground counsel to drafting recommendations. In 2017, we will engage a third cohort of states in targeted technical assistance projects.
