Research and Education Accountability

The Office of Research and Education Accountability (OREA) provides the General Assembly with objective and accurate research, evaluation, and analysis.

Recent topics include funding for K-12 schools, transportation funding, charter school policy, and college readiness of high school students. OREA publishes reports and briefs, interactive maps, policy portals, special publications like our glossary of education terms, and infographics.

During the legislative session, OREA provides staff support for legislative committees, analyzes the state budget, and monitors legislation.
