Improved Education Decision Making

CREDO accomplishes this goal by means of rigorous research and program evaluation. Educators, lawmakers, and parents use CREDO’s publications to strengthen their focus on the results of innovative programs, charter school legislation, curricula, and accountability practices with an overall goal of providing universal public education which enables every student to succeed.
