SupportEd conducts literature reviews and provides qualitative as well as quantitative research. In conducting research, we leverage our knowledge of EL education policies and EL demographics, develop a research agenda and methodology, and conduct interviews, a literature review, and research of extant data. We provide insights into complex issues for clients and propose recommendations and solutions.
