The Center for Research in Education and Social Policy (CRESP) within the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Delaware conducts rigorous research to help policymakers and practitioners in education, health care and human services determine which policies and programs are most promising to improve outcomes for children, youth, adults and families.
To better prepare our children for success in a global market, we need to transform our education system and improve services that support the health and well-being of children and families. But what strategies and programs are most effective?
- Do charter schools produce better student outcomes and, if so, why?
- What strategies increase high school completion rates and improve college preparedness or work readiness for graduates?
- Which programs are most effective for reducing obesity and improving health outcomes for low-income, urban youth?
These are the types of questions that we will strive to answer.
