What We Do > Policy and Consulting
We advise policymakers at all levels—from municipalities to the federal government, from nonprofit organizations to multinational corporations—on critical issues in education. We apprise them of current research and share our perspective on important issues, helping our partners formulate new projects and programs.
CCT has worked to identify and document outcomes of Cisco's initiatives to bring technology into the educational vision, curricula, and school infrastructure of school districts in Mississippi and Louisiana. Cisco's aim is to improve teaching practice and student skills to better meet the demands of the 21st century. The goal of our work with Cisco is to produce recommendations (based on summative and formative feedback) in the areas of sustainable, district-level or school-level transformation, in order to inform future initiatives and to help educational leaders and decision-makers who are involved in implementing 21st-century education systems in school districts or individual schools.
