Quality First.

We ground our recommendations in deep knowledge, evaluation and analysis. Our extensive understanding of what's happening in education policymaking across the nation sets us apart and gives our clients a head start in their work.

We help our clients develop proposals designed to make an impact and help get them enacted. We craft bold and effective messages to convey the importance of each issue; engage critical friends, opponents and stakeholders needed to move and implement changes; and create the tools necessary to get the job done.

We are thought partners with our clients. We value relationships that are grounded in honesty and inquiry. We believe that an open exchange of ideas, supported by careful vetting, can produce dynamic results. We encourage our clients to think expansively yet be pragmatic, take smart but reasonable risks and learn from others.

Our services include Strategic Planning and Counsel; Research and Public Policy Analysis; Communications and Advocacy; and Grantmaking Effectiveness. To review some of our past publications and reports, visit our Library.
