School drop-out rates, low test scores, poor attendance — these are only symptoms of a larger problem in our schools. But too often we just treat the symptoms. Sapientis digs deeper to unearth the root causes that hinder progress in our public schools.

Our research includes interviews with teachers, school directors, parents, business executives, university professors, government workers, union members and concerned citizens. Each of these groups is partially responsible for the problems in public education, and each has a role in finding the solutions.

Through our fieldwork, Sapientis will produce a series of reports to highlight our findings and to list recommendations. These reports aim to render an independent, unvarnished analysis of the problems and solutions in our public schools and create a valuable diagnostic tool.
