The Philadelphia Education Research Consortium (PERC)

Began in August 1, 2014

Launched in August 2014 to provide research on some of the city’s mostpressing education issues, the Philadelphia Education Research Consortium (PERC)is a currently partnership between Research for Action and the School District of Philadelphia’s Office of Research and Evaluation (ORE).

This unique partnership pairs RFA researchers—who offer an independent external lens and deep connections with education stakeholders throughout the city—and ORE researchers—who contribute knowledge of district decision-making processes and bureaucratic and data infrastructures and the ability to leverage relationships with District program office personnel to influence these processes.

Drawing on the complementary capacities of each partner, PERC tackles longer-term, sustained areas of investigation that can be leveraged by the School District at the right time by the right people for real change in Philadelphia.
