Policy Development

In times of inadequate funding, it’s more critical than ever to ensure that policy frameworks are drawn in ways that maximize educational opportunity. NSA can help you to analyze your current policy climate, and develop strategies to strengthen it.

From the NSA portfolio:

  • Convened external stakeholders and crafted policy recommendations for the School District of Philadelphia, which resulted in its adoption of an innovative system of alternative high schools that have contributed to the reduction in the city-wide dropout rate
  • Worked with the National Academy Foundation to develop a set of local, state, and federal policy priorities to promote high-quality, paid internships for high school students
