Faculty, staff, and students in the UC Davis School of Education conduct and disseminate leading-edge research on public education’s most intractable problems. Our research is grounded in practice, and we work in partnership with complex and diverse schools and communities, inside and outside classrooms, to make immediate impact and establish nationally recognized models of best practices.
Our research focuses on the language and literacy development of young children, particularly dual language learners. We have several ongoing projects. The lab is supported by grants from the National Institute of Health, Foundation for Child Development, and Yolo Community Foundation.
