The Alliance focuses on translational research that will turn conceptual insights from existing work into learning opportunities for students. Research illustrating how Decision Education impacts decision quality and life outcomes will help drive innovation in K-12 education. The Alliance believes that not only will educational outcomes be improved, but that those with essential decision skills and dispositions will also gain lifelong personal benefits, and help society as a whole. However, there is currently little research focused on youth learning the skills included in Decision Education.
Toward that end, the Alliance’s Research Department is working in partnership with like-minded organizations, educators, and leading academic researchers, many of whom are members of the Alliance Advisory Council.
