Texas Schools Project has been conducting high-quality education research since 1992.

Its founder, John F. Kain, was one of the first researchers to ascertain that important, longitudinal research could be conducted using Texas’ extensive collection of administrative data, which had been collected through PIEMS, Texas’ Public Education Information Management System, starting in 1990.

Since 1992, Texas Schools Project researchers have used this valuable data to investigate a myriad of topics. Our research expertise spans from early childhood education through college remediation and beyond. The depth and breadth of inquiry possible with this data is demonstrated in our extensive listing of published work, working papers and dissertations.
