Mathematica is participating in a developmental evaluation of the National Science Foundation INCLUDES initiative, which funds projects aimed at broadening the participation of underrepresented groups in science and engineering discovery and innovation.
A high-quality education is critical to the future of our nation's children and our country's economic success, but many lack access to effective teachers and schools. Mathematica studies public and private efforts to improve the quality of education and competitiveness of our workforce. Our work helps advance the science of education research and further discourse about education reform.
