Overview

Focusing on four states (California, New York, North Carolina, and Washington) and a large urban school district within each, CTP's "core study" examined connections between policy environments and teaching practice through fully nested state, district, school, and teacher samples. The research carried out from 1998-02 combined case studies with survey research and document analyses. Analytic work integrated what was learned from each level within and across states into a combined set of insights about the way teachers' work and student learning opportunities reflect and are shaped by various policy environments and contexts in which they work.
