Today’s children, especially those from poor families, face multiple challenges to getting the education they need to succeed in life. These challenges reinforce existing inequalities in living standards, making it quite difficult for disadvantaged students to break out of the cycle of poverty. Education is one of the core areas of focus for EPI, which has produced a large body of research on the factors that make schools successful, support teachers in their work, and ensure a well-rounded and adequate education for every child. In partnership with the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education Campaign, EPI recommends a new national education policy that would take a more comprehensive measure of student performance.
