What We Do

EdPolicyWorks is a joint collaboration between the School of Education and Human Development and the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy that seeks to bring together researchers from across the University of Virginia and the State to focus on important questions of educational policy and the competitiveness of labor in an era of globalization. 

Our Vision

We envision that educational policy and workforce competitiveness encompass a broad range of issues and seek to develop a diverse portfolio of research projects and disciplinary perspectives on these issues.

A Cautionary Tale of Tutoring Hard-to-Reach Students in Kenya

We study the effect of teacher-student phone calls in Kenya when schools were closed. Schools were randomly assigned for 3rd, 5th and 6th graders to receive one of two versions of a 7-week weekly math intervention—5-minute accountability checks or 15-minute mini-tutoring sessions—or to the control group.
