Outlier Research & Evaluation, housed in UChicago STEM Education, is a cross-disciplinary, diverse team committed to applied research and evaluation that directly informs educators and policymakers. Outlier will work with the Broward County Public Schools to help educators support critical thinking by having students consider alternate points of view, support statements with evidence, and communicate their thought processes to others. This work will present a replicable model that other districts and states can follow, while also introducing new theories about the spread of innovative practices.

for support of Bright Line Watch  
One of the greatest threats to democracy is the idea that it is unassailable. At a time of potential danger to American democratic norms and institutions, it is more urgent than ever for scholars to highlight the risks to our system of government. In this spirit, Bright Line Watch brings together a group of leading political scientists to monitor democratic practices, their resilience, and potential threats. Building on its core surveys, Bright Line Watch will continue to field regular expert and public surveys about the health of American democracy, as well as expand and innovate its survey modules and survey populations. In addition, Bright Line Watch will continue to organize high-profile public events and publish academic research that is broadly shared with the public.
