Always Improving.

We are building an engine for scalable impact in education.

Our Mission

Students from underserved communities graduate from high school and college at far lower rates than their advantaged peers, and these opportunity gaps powerfully perpetuate longstanding socioeconomic inequalities. Despite notable pockets of excellence and equity, our education system chronically fails to scale up effective strategies to reach the students who need them most. That needs to change.

PERTS (Project for Education Research that Scales) helps educators apply evidence-based strategies in order to advance educational excellence and equity on a large scale. We believe that properly scaling educational research can empower schools to reduce inequality and create better experiences and outcomes for students and teachers alike.

RESEARCH     PRACTICE

Bring research innovations into practice

We bridge the gap between research and practice by translating research findings into practical solutions. These solutions can be quickly implemented to serve large numbers of historically underserved students.

Learn from implementations to grow impact

While supporting the dissemination of research-based innovations, PERTS gathers essential data on their outcomes. That data teaches us how to faithfully and sustainably grow the reach of these innovations and maximize their impact on educational equity.
