At Relay, research yields actionable insights. Collectively, our questions help us better understand how teachers and school leaders, in partnership with schools and communities, help students develop the knowledge, skills, and mindsets associated with success in school and life. In pursuit of this agenda, we consider contemporary educational issues that have broad implications for how teachers and school leaders prepare for their work in schools and classrooms, and that are of consequence to a diverse community of stakeholders. This research agenda also helps us investigate the quality and impact of our own programs. For a list of publicly available documents, visit our policies and public information page.
