SREed works with partners to evaluate a variety of educational programs. Below are featured reports from our recent work.
College and Career Readiness
SREed worked in partnership with the Westlawn Re-engagement Center to conduct a Photovoice evaluation that engaged the voices of Milwaukee Opportunity Youth, young adults ages 16 to 24 who are disconnected from school and work, in developing and refining a pilot program to meet their needs.
Early Childhood Education
In 2010, SREed worked with Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee to obtain an Investing in Innovations (i3) grant for the SPARK Early Literacy Program from the Department of Education. SREed conducted a two-year randomized control trial evaluation of the SPARK literacy model, an innovative approach for addressing the literacy needs of low-income and minority schools in Milwaukee.
During the 2017-18 school year, SREed completed case studies of two Wisconsin schools that focused their evaluation efforts on educator growth and development to uncover promising practices in their approaches.
Racial Equity in Education
SREed is conducting a multi-year, mixed method evaluation of the Wisconsin Urban Leadership Institute. This initiative brings together the five largest Wisconsin school districts, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the Urban League of Greater Madison to develop strategies for promoting equitable education opportunities for students of color. They created the Institute to empower principal leaders as change-agents to address the educational opportunity gaps between student of color groups and White students.
