Our mission is to contribute to the improvement of the New Orleans Public Schools by conducting research on reforms, and publishing research findings, so that successful reforms can be replicated, and failing practices can be eliminated.
Our organization goals and our mission are founded upon the premise that effective education policies and practices:
1. Promote equal access and quality education for all students,
2. Are research-based and data-driven, and
3. Reflect an understanding of how children learn and how schools become effective.
