Education Policy Research

Education represents one of the largest expenditure categories for states and localities around the country.   Tennessee provides funding for the education pipeline beginning at the pre-kindergarten level through k-12 and the post-secondary systems, ending with programs that provide training for adults.   The Boyd Center has a long history of research on various facets of education policy on both the revenue and expenditure sides of the budget.   Our newest initiative is development of a longitudinal data system, in cooperation with the Tennessee Department of Education, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and other state agencies, funded by a grant under the federal Race to the Top program.   Those interested in education policy are encouraged to review this site for our latest research.
