New site offers research, guidance to promote high school improvement


The American Institutes for Research (AIR) has announced the creation of a new web site for its National High School Center, a U.S. Department of Education-funded entity that serves as a central source of in-depth knowledge, expertise, and analysis on high school improvement. The High School Center works to identify research-supported programs and tools that can improve high school teaching and administration to better help all students learn. It also aims to develop user-friendly products and technical assistance services to help states implement these programs and tools, drawing on AIR’s extensive experience operating national technical assistance centers, as well as the knowledge gained by the organization through conducting large-scale evaluations of prominent high school reform efforts. The center’s tools and findings now are available on its web site, AIR said.
