Meet our Results for America State Education Fellows

Results for America’s State Education Fellows program, founded in December 2017, is helping 18 state education agency officials from 9 leading states implement the ground-breaking evidence provisions in the bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to improve education outcomes for all their students.

The fellowship is the first to bring together senior program and evaluation leaders from state education agencies into a single network focused on accelerating the generation and use of evidence. By supporting these innovative leaders who oversee states’ key education programs and evaluation efforts, Results for America is creating new champions in investing in what works and helping make evidence-based policymaking the new normal in education
