ERC Awarded Continuation Grant to Evaluate United Way of Greater Houston Education Initiative

The Texas A&M University Education Research Center (ERC) has been awarded a $220,000 grant by United Way of Greater Houston (UWGH) to conduct the Year 6 evaluation of the agency’s urban education initiative, which involves over 40 non-profit agency programs that deliver educational services for more than 300,000 children and youth from disadvantaged circumstances in the Houston metropolitan area. Hersh Waxman, Yolanda Padrón, and Kayla Rollins are co-PIs of the project. Additional ERC researchers involved include Danielle Brown and Jackie Stillisano. CEHD doctoral students Kim Wright and Brenna Lin are also involved in the project.

The ERC team will continue working with the UWGH staff to design and implement the evaluation and to report on the success of the UWGH Education Initiative.  Data collection instruments developed in Year 5 of the evaluation (rubrics, surveys, observation protocols, etc.) will be used to collect context, process, implementation, and outcome data on several of the UWGH’s education programs that are being implemented within local schools.
