Camille Lemieux provides technical assistance to three Institute of Education Sciences (IES)-funded regional educational laboratories (RELs): REL Northeast & Islands, REL Appalachia, and REL Midwest. Prior to joining EDC, Camille served as a research fellow for the International Network for Action Research in Education. As an undergraduate research assistant at Lake Forest College, she worked on projects concerning comparative and international education policy. She also conducted classroom-based research in The Ohio State University’s Summer Research Opportunities Program, and collected data for a Lake Forest College Digital Chicago project that explored the link between housing discrimination policies and education inequalities. In this blog post, Camille describes how her experience conducting research for Digital Chicago led her to track down an oft-quoted, yet elusive statistic on the number of states with Kindergarten Readiness Assessments. In addition to sharing her findings, she encourages fellow researchers to think about how they can make their findings most useful to the public, including creating online resources that can be updated quickly.
