The Puerto Rico Department of Education & UofT
Puerto Rico’s public school system identified a need for reforms even before COVID-19!  To respond to these needs, the Department of Economics' Gustavo Bobonis et al established a research-practice partnership with the Puerto Rico Department of Education (PRDE), The partnership was funded and supported  by the William T. Grant Foundation’s Institutional Challenge Grant. In a new post, Professor Bobonis and other members of the partnership  describe their past, current and future work to benefit the students of Puerto Rico.
