The U.S. Constitution was drafted in Philadelphia from late May to mid-September 1787.

Milton, Sansom; Barakat, Sultan – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2016

Krause, George A.; Lewis, David E.; Douglas, James W. – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2013
Governments make policy decisions in the same areas in quite different institutions.

In this study, we claim that differences in political context and institutional design constrain the policy choices…

Evans, Brent A. – ProQuest LLC, 2013
Prior researchers (Anderson et al. 1994; Ballard & Johnson 2004; Hoag & Benedict 2010) have shown that different math abilities do not equally correlate with success in economics, yet no research has specifically compared algebra and geometry skills as predictors of economics success.

Powell, Jonathan – Journal of Conflict Resolution, 2012
Previous studies have attested to leaders "coup-proofing" their regimes by reducing the ability or disposition of their armies to seek their removal.

As the student success movement has come of age at America's community colleges, much effort has gone into state-level reforms coupled with college-level efforts, on the theory that relying on individual institutions alone to bring change at scale across states and the nation will take too long and cost too much. But if centralized authority is…

In the United Kingdom, the higher education landscape has undergone a transformation since the late 1980s as seen in the "massification" of higher education and the "quality revolution".

Sawchuk, Stephen – Education Week, 2010
Forced into an uneasy balancing act between their members and the president they helped elect, the national teachers' unions are responding to the Obama administration's teacher-effectiveness agenda in notably different ways.
