Case Studies

Bellwether Education Partners particularly values innovative and entrepreneurial approaches to solving education problems. The following case studies highlight examples of the work we have completed and the impact we have achieved.

  • Policy & Evaluation

    In 2009, the Foundation Trustees decided to establish a new Strategic Initiative to drive greater impact in an area of particular priority for the foundation and selected education as the focus for that initiative. Bellwether worked with Stranahan Foundation staff and trustees to help them identify and articulate the Foundation’s priorities for strategic investment in education, attract a high-quality pool of potential grantees, select the most promising grantees from that pool, and monitor the impact of their grantees' work and overall foundation investment strategy.

  • Policy & Evaluation

    In 2011, Bellwether Education Partners analyzed 5 states’ laws against a set of criteria that we believe reflect a high-quality law. In 2012, we expanded this analysis to include 22 states that passed legislation or established significant new regulations from 2010-2012.

  • Policy & Evaluation

    In 2011, Bellwether Education Partners published “Location, Location, Location,” a paper that analyzed the finances of a large, high-performing charter school management organization, and compared how that network’s model would perform financially under cost and funding conditions in different states.
