Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
America Achieves is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing excellence and equity in U.S. schools. America Achieves will continue to imbue deeper learning across its individual programs, which include a global network of schools and districts using the OECD Test for Schools (based on PISA) for benchmarking and improvement purposes, as well as a teacher and principal fellows program aimed at creating educator leaders. The organization’s work supports an increase in bottom-up demand for deeper learning practices both by exposing teacher leaders to deeper learning champions and by supporting the spread of improved instructional practices using a common benchmark.
for Results for America's global survey of evidence-informed policymaking practices  
Results for America (RFA), which operates under America Achieves, Inc., seeks to improve the impact of public resources in government through evidence-informed policymaking. Under this grant, RFA will begin to expand its work beyond the United States by conducting a comprehensive survey of policies, programs, and systems for evidence-informed policymaking around the world, especially in the developing world. RFA will also convene leaders to inform the research, share experiences, and potentially begin building a global coalition for evidence-informed policymaking.
