Public Education Reform

The Public Education Reform Research Project (PERRP) is a multi-discipline research project that relies on experts in education, psychology, sociology, public affairs, law and business. These experts have begun their work which will be published in numerous articles, policy statements and papers. The project will examine the multiple facets of academic training of urban youth, target the enduring racial/ethnic gaps in academic performance, consider comprehensively the factors and effects that have led to these gaps and develop recommendations for addressing and closing them.

The learned experts that make up the research team are Dr. Lillian Poats, Dean College of Education; Professor Marcia Johnson, URRC Director, TMSL, Professor Asmara Tekle, TMSL.
