Established in 1996, under the direction of Paul E. Peterson (Henry Lee Shattuck Professor of Government) PEPG has rapidly distinguished itself as a significant player within the educational reform movement. Having supplemented the program leadership with the addition of Deputy Director Martin R. West (Assistant Professor of Education, Political Science, and Public Policy at Brown University) and through the support of its institutional sponsors—the Taubman Center for State and Local Government at the Kennedy School of Government and the Department of Government in Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences—PEPG continues to fulfill its core missions:
- Provide high-level scientific training for young scholars who can make independent contributions to scholarly research.
- Foster a national community of reform-minded scientific researchers.
- Produce path-breaking studies that provide a scientific basis for school reform policy.
