Center on Children and Families
The Brookings Institution's Center on Children and Families conducts research and outreach which focuses on four issues: 1) low-income working families and policies designed to improve their economic prospects; 2) policies to increase the proportion of children growing up in married, two-parent families, including proposals to reduce teen pregnancy; 3) social mobility in the United States and investments in children to improve their opportunities to climb higher on the education and income ladder; and 4) fiscal problems of federal and state governments, and steps that can be taken to ensure fiscal responsibility while supporting programs targeted to poor and low-income families.
Education Research Section
The Education Research Section at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University seeks to conduct and promote high quality education research through the use of experimental and quasi-experimental research designs, and to disseminate the results of such research to educators, policy-makers, and the public in order to improve the quality of education at all levels.
The Brookings Institution
The Brookings Institution is an independent, nonpartisan organization devoted to research, analysis, education, and publication on public policy issues in economics, foreign policy, and governance. The goal of Brookings activities is to improve the performance of American institutions and the quality of public policy by using social science to analyze emerging issues and to offer practical approaches to those issues in language aimed at the general public.
