The Brown Center on Education Policy is a part of the Brookings Institution that aims to explore "the challenges facing the American education system and to help identify practical policy solutions." The Center is home to the Brown Center Report on American Education, which has been published since 2000. The Report analyzes the state of American education using the latest measures of student learning, and it identifies and evaluates promising educational reforms. First-time visitors can click on the Publications area to browse around the collection of papers on education policy, their Letters on Education, and the aforementioned Report. The papers on education policy are well worth a look and include titles such as "Small Schools and Small Classes" and "The State of America's High Schools." On the site's homepage, visitors can make their way through Recent Research and Commentary, which includes full-text reports, op-ed pieces, and interviews from Center fellows and staff members. Additionally, visitors can create their own online portfolios where they can save papers and items of note for future reference.
