- What are the current national trends in high schools reform?
- What is the best available evidence of effectiveness regarding the most prevalent reform interventions?
- What is working? Not working? Where are the current gaps in research?
- What is the best way to stimulate innovation while building an evidence base?
- How does the research relate to current policy and practice? What are the implications for the future?
