The Regional Educational Laboratory Program

The Regional Educational Laboratory Program (the "Lab Program") is the U.S. Department of Education's largest research and development investment designed to help educators, policy makers, and communities improve schools and help all students attain their full potential. Administered by the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), the network of 10 Regional Labs works to ensure that local, state and regional educational improvement efforts are informed by the best available research and knowledge from practice, and that exemplary and promising programs--and other important lessons about school reform--developed or learned in one site can be appropriately applied elsewhere.
