To ensure that we consistently address a wide spectrum of education-related questions, we turn to our multipartisan Steering Committee. The committee works regularly with Consortium staff to develop a research agenda and review research in progress. Institutional members of our Steering Committee represent the Illinois State Board of Education, the Chicago Public Schools, and the city's Board of Education, Teachers Union, and Principals and Administrators Association. Individual members include civic leaders, education researchers, and members of education-reform, advocacy, and service organizations.
