Education Policy and Advocacy Work

Partnering with state and federal policymakers

As a leader in strategic foresight and educational transformation, KnowledgeWorks helps empower policymakers to design education systems where every student in the state benefits from high quality personalized learning experiences that prepare them for success in college, career and life.

Working at both the state and federal levels, KnowledgeWorks partners with policymakers, educators and business and community leaders to develop a vision for personalized education reform. Our team then helps policymakers advance this vision, by creating system alignment, exploring effective policy solutions and building public will for sustainable policy change.

KnowledgeWorks is committed to helping policymakers advance the following four goals:

  • Alignment: To create a shared vision for student success and align all levels of governance, functions and resources to that vision.
  • Shared Ownership: To engage diverse stakeholders in the design and implementation of personalized learning systems and cultivate shared ownership of system design and implementation.
  • Equity: To leverage data to illuminate opportunity and outcome gaps and engage historically underserved communities to design solutions that improve equity across the system.
  • Transformative School Models: To build the capacity of states and districts to move from transitional pilot programs to mature evidence-based personalized teaching and learning models.

Our collaborative and deep engagements with policymakers and education stakeholders across the country shapes our expertise, enabling our policy team to advocate for catalytic and sustainable policy solutions at every level of the education system. Our comprehensive policy approach ensures strong educational alignment focused on personalized learning and centered around the student.
