Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data on Education Research Founded

Faculty from the University of Texas at Dallas are collaborating with the Urban Institute's Education Policy Center's prinicipal investigator, Jane Hannaway, as well as with scholars from Duke University, Stanford University, the University of Florida, the University of Missouri, and the University of Washington.

The researchers will be using state-wide databases from Florida, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Texas, and Washington as the basis for their research. The research will focus on issues surrounding teacher quality (see Ed Week - subscription).

As Hannaway notes, this data will only be avaialble for secondary analysis to members of CALDER. FERPA concerns prohibit wider access. That's a bummer.
