As education policy becomes more and more political, a new generation of education advocacy groups has emerged seeking to promote a wide variety of agendas and objectives. But do such advocacy efforts succeed in influencing the public policy that governs education?

On March 4, the Brown Center on Education Policy hosted an online discussion to address this question. Panelists discussed a new report, “Measuring and Understanding Education Advocacy,” that examines the influence and approach of advocacy organizations in three states that recently enacted or considered school reform legislation: Louisiana, Tennessee, and North Carolina, as well as the implications of a new methodology designed to accurately measure the influence of individual advocacy groups.
