Education Policy Research Scan

Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute
District of Columbia
Organization Overview: 

The mission of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute is to complete President Reagan’s unfinished work and to preserve the timeless principles he championed: individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride. Specifically, the mission of the new Reagan Institute operating as an entity of the Foundation from both the Reagan Library in California as well as in Washington, D.C., is to move well beyond the Foundation’s mission to preserve the memory of our 40th President. The Reagan Institute proactively promotes his ideals, vision, and leadership example for the benefit of generations to come through youth education and academic alliances, scholarly work, and substantive, issue-driven forums.

Project Name: 
Education Policy Research Scan
Project Type: 
Policy Analysis
Project Overview: 

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute will leverage its reputation and convening power to tackle the challenges surrounding excellence in education through the establishment of a national summit. Grounded in the influential 1983 Nation At Risk report, commissioned under the Reagan Presidency, this education summit will convene thought leaders to shape the future of education in America. The inaugural Reagan Education Summit is set to launch in Spring of 2018, thirty-five years after the findings galvanized education advocates into action.

As such, RRPFI is in need of a scan of the education policy landscape informing the content and direction of the April 2018 Summit.


Student should produce a comprehensive scan of the education policy landscape highlighting pressure points, investments, challenges, and opportunities at the state, local and federal levels. Briefings should be produced on specific policy areas and inform future op-ed work and/or recommendations following the Summit.
