Reports from Policy Analysts

Policy Analysis Initiative

A network of NCTE, CCCC, and TYCA volunteers track state policy developments impacting English language arts, English studies, literacy, and the humanities. These volunteers, one covering P12 education and one covering higher education in each state, provide other members with analyzed information about state policies. With this knowledge, educators can better participate in the policymaking process that affects them, their students, their institutions, and their communities.
