We’ve said it before: researchers have cool friends. At dscout, we’re lucky that some of them drop by the office from time to time. So we were thrilled when the brilliant Nicole Beechum, a senior research analyst at the University of Chicago Consortium on School Research, joined us a few weeks ago to talk about her work.  Nicole and her co-workers at the Consortium are charged with investigating the implications of Chicago Public Schools policies, and their effect on everyone from administrators and teachers to students, parents and families.
