Council to focus attention on statewide education research

Based at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, the council recently convened a two-day symposium that attracted more than 100 participants from across the state. This fall, it will publish its first study, an analysis of the state’s supply of teachers and administrators.

“What is missing in educational research is state level [data], especially in Illinois,” notes Executive Director Jennifer Presley.
