  • On the Front Lines of Schools Perspectives of Teachers and Principals on the High School Dropout Problem

In highlighting both the opportunities and barriers to addressing the dropout problem, we hope to further spark educators, parents, students, policymakers, and others to continue to make this issue an urgent national priority and to make the promise of equal opportunity the President envisions for every student a reality.

  • Rebuilding Rwanda From Genocide to Prosperity Through Education 
    This report discusses Rwanda's potential for economic growth but argues that it cannot be done without improving its education system. Some of the interventions that would make a difference in Rwanda require a large level of investment, such as starting a school, while others are less intensive, like helping individual students purchase school uniforms. With a strong commitment to private enterprises, no tolerance for corruption, and a population energetic for development, Rwanda offers an ideal setting for an education-fueled boom.

  • All Volunteer Force From Military to Civilian Servic
    The central message of this report is that a new generation of veterans is returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan without sufficient connections to communities, is enthusiastic to serve again, and points the way forward for how our nation can better integrate them into civilian life. Although the 1.8 million veterans are from every corner of our nation, they are strongly united in their perspectives regarding civic responsibilities and opportunities as they return home. What's more, the findings how that OIF/OEF veterans are underutilized assets in our communities, and their continued service is likely to improve their transition home. We believe there is significant potential to increase volunteering and civic engagement among this generation of veterans.
