Proiectul este finanțat de Open Society Foundation și răspunde capacității limitate de a realiza cercetări în domeniul politicilor educaționale în România, în contextul în care deficiențele persistente ale sistemului de educație necesită intervenții corective la nivelul politicilor. Proiectul își propune să formeze o echipă de cercetători care să analizeze datele PISA pentru România, urmând ca apoi să scrie și să disemineze un raport pe baza acestor analize.
