Education Analytics, a Madison-based nonprofit organization led by La Follette School faculty member Rob Meyer, received a $7.8 million award from the U.S. Department of Education to expand the SPARK Early Literacy Program.

La Follette School students have numerous opportunities to apply their coursework as project assistants (PAs) on and off campus. Employers gain highly skilled employees, and students use their training in real-world work environments.

Rob Meyer’s commitment to improving K-12 students’ academic success spans three decades. As an educator and researcher, he has shared his passion with students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and school leaders across the country.
