About the NSF-funded Scale Up Project

“Systemic Reform of Math and Science Education in Chicago: An Interactive Web-Based Resource” is a product of the Scale Up of Math and Science K-12 Education Reform in a Large Urban District project. The Scale Up project was funded by a grant (07335500) from the National Science Foundation to Loyola University Chicago in partnership with the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Chicago Public Schools. The project aims to integrate the scholarly and practice-based work of educational practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and evaluators in order to produce findings that are comprehensive, multidisciplinary and, most importantly, usable.
