The Insider View of Education Reform

What is Education Insider?

Education Insider is a free monthly report that provides real-time insights on federal education policy trends, debates, and issues—from the handful of decision makers that are driving the process.  The Insiders include current and former White House and U.S. Department of Education staff, Congressional leaders, state school chiefs, and leaders of major trade associations, think tanks, and advocacy groups.

Through an exclusive survey tool, we ask these key policy and political insiders for their opinion on important and timely federal policy ranging from the timing of key legislation to the support or opposition of policy proposals. Feedback from the field is coupled with the expert analysis of our co-publishers Andy Rotherham, Jeff Selingo, and Austin Dannhaus to provide visibility into issues, trends, and likely outcomes. 

Each month's survey is based on the current events, debates, and emerging trends.  Topics covered have included ESEA reauthorization and waivers, federal funding, Common Core standards and assessments, national and state elections, digital learning, and Race to the Top.
