Welcome to HERC


The Houston Education Research Consortium is a research-practice partnership between Rice University's Kinder Institute for Urban Research and 11 Houston-area school districts
to guide data-driven, equity-minded policy.

Transformative Research


HERC uses a partnership research model – a jointly developed research agenda that involves both researchers and school district leaders working together on critical issues to improve educational equity. HERC follows a long-term, rather than project-based, collaboration to solve longstanding problems
with a focus on informing decision-makers directly.
