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.

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.

This course will examine the efficacy of alternative "macro-level" policies to reform American education, in particular school accountability, strategic management of human capital, educator effictiveness systems, performance-based compensation, performance management and data-informed decision-making, charter schools, school choice, and privatization.
