Erika Hunt, Center for the Study of Education Policy

Erika Hunt, senior policy analyst at Illinois State’s Center for the Study of Education Policy, has joined the Statewide Research Steering Committee to explore the question of whether and how we might strengthen our ability to use data and drive research at the state level to improve educational practice and policy across the birth-workforce continuum.

The committee will explore whether there is a need for a statewide organization focused on answering research questions driven by leaders and practitioners in the field—research designed to directly impact practice and policy. If so, the group will further explore how to meet that need.
