The Education Resource Information Navigator (ERIN), a new beta Web site from the Arnold Foundation, provides context on education-related topics for researchers and policy makers. The site organizes education-related topics into 13 areas, such as School Funding, Data, and Technology in Schools, and provides sub-categories for deeper exploration of each topic.
For example, a user can select “Teacher Recruitment and Selection” and learn details about foundations that provide funding for the selected area, relevant policies and research, organizations focused on the topic, and related technology.
With many other online, education databases now available, education stakeholders increasingly have access to research that can be used to support their advocacy efforts.
