CHERP sponsors a series of monthly in-person presentations on preliminary research and analyses in education to encourage discussion and suggestions among the Chicago education policy research community. The series offers education researchers and students across the region an opportunity to learn about each other’s work, interact informally, and support the field of education research in Chicago. CHERP was launched in 2014 by Mathematica Policy Research in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and the American Institutes for Research.
