Federal and state policymakers and philanthropies are increasingly emphasizing the use of evidence to drive policy decisions. However, what exactly is evidence-based policy, and what are some of the challenges to this decision-making approach? The Child and Family Research Partnership and CHASP are hosting a symposium on Thursday, April 16th to bring together researchers, practitioners, policymakers, philanthropies, and students to discuss the benefits and challenges of evidence-based policy.
