A New Bipartisan Initiative for U.S. Social Programs: Evidence-Based Reforms Are Key to Rapid Progress in Education, Poverty Reduction, Crime Prevention, and Other Areas
Coalition for Evidence-Based Policy
This paper proposes a new bipartisan initiative to strengthen the effectiveness of U.S. social programs by focusing funds within each program on research-proven projects, practices, and strategies ("interventions"). The proposal seeks neither an increase nor decrease in overall program funding; rather, its central aim is to maximize the effectiveness of existing funds in each program--a goal that may be particularly important given the tight budgetary climate facing such programs.
