About Us

About the Rennie Center:


The Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy’s mission is to improve public education through well-informed decision-making based on deep knowledge and evidence of effective policymaking and practice. As Massachusetts’ preeminent voice in public education reform, we create open spaces for educators and policymakers to consider evidence, discuss cutting-edge issues, and develop new approaches to advance student learning. Through our staunch commitment to independent, non-partisan research and constructive conversations, we work to promote an education system that provides every child with the opportunity to be successful in school and in life.


To achieve this mission, the Rennie Center carries out three interconnected sets of work. The first is the Condition of Education in the Commonwealth, which brings together a wide-ranging set of data indicators to illuminate areas of success and areas for continued improvement across the education pipeline. The Condition of Education underpins our outreach activities throughout the year, helping us offer multiple opportunities for constructive discourse on significant issues in education. Our second major area of work is independent research on critical issues in education. Our objective and non-partisan research projects are carried out by experienced researchers trained in both quantitative and qualitative methods. Finally, the Rennie Center facilitates on-the-ground programs to promote substantive changes in education policy and practice in school districts across the Commonwealth.
