The Johns Hopkins School of Education follows in the tradition of the university as a whole-: to be a world leader in research. We have amongst the most influential researchers in education in the United States. They are doing extraordinary statistical analysis, for example, but then they're leading teams in school districts, in states, in schools to actually make a difference.

How do we identify interventions that will help schools and communities alleviate problems and increase educational achievement and attainment for all.

As we bring the future of America's teaching force into focus, we are working on the ground to improve it. We support doctoral students to join our teams. They are our co-researchers, our co-authors, our co-investigators, and their names will go on our research reports. There is no stronger preparation.
