Education and Out of School Time

Youth who have opportunities to develop core academic and 21st century skills are better equipped to graduate from high school, pursue postsecondary education and training, make a living, and be productive citizens.

Wilder Research studies pre-K-12 education, post-secondary and higher education, cradle-to-career systems change, STEM education, and out-of-school and informal learning, particularly to address opportunity and achievement gaps for students who are most vulnerable: low-income students, students of color, students whose primary language is not English, and first-generation college students.
