The Improving Education Systems: Policies, Organization, Management, and Leadership (Systems) topic supports research on system-level education improvements at the school, district, state, or national level. Systems projects explore, develop, measure, or evaluate specific practices, programs, and policies intended to improve education at the system level or to improve the system's ability to implement reforms. Examples include school reorganization, accountability systems, school choice, data use and cost accounting, early warning systems, and teacher incentive programs.
Systems researchers have explored, developed, and tested for efficacy a number of policies and programs intended to improve education outcomes for large numbers of students, schools, or districts.
Example: Using district administrative data to develop algorithms (called “early warning systems”) that identify students at risk for failure, used to target additional supports to help them succeed.
