How Intercultural Development Research Association impacts San Antonio's shared Community Vision
The Intercultural Development Research Association (IDRA) works with families, communities, K-12 educators, and higher education institutions to ensure the public education system is preparing all students to succeed in college. IDRA strengthens schools by providing on-site training and technical assistance to thousands of teachers across the country in more than 1,600 school districts. IDRA also engages families to work with school leaders in monitoring the academic success of their children and those in their neighborhood. As a national resource, IDRA sets standards in research design, analysis and reporting to inform public and professional decision makers on the broad array of policy issues that impact education.
