The George Washington University Graduate School of Education and Human Development runs the Center on Education Policy as a national, independent advocate for public education and more effective public schools. The center will conduct research and analysis on the mix of knowledge, skills, and abilities that define the so-called bright outlook jobs listed in the U.S. Department of Labor’s O*NET database of occupations. An analysis of the extent to which deeper learning outcomes characterize the workforce needed to fill these emerging and high-growth occupations, as well as other jobs, will help strengthen the case for why deeper learning is important for all students.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of Monkey Cage blog  
The Monkey Cage blog, hosted at George Washington University and appearing on the website of the Washington Post, builds a bridge between political scientists and the American political conversation by creating a compelling forum, developing publicly focused scholars, and building an informed audience. This grant will enable America’s political conversation to be more informed by timely, accessible, and sound research from a publicly oriented political science discipline—and to be less dominated by evidence-free arguments.
