Published September 17, 2015
American public opinion on foreign policy, including on issues like immigration, climate change, and advancing U.S. global interests, is sharply divided among Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, according to a survey from The Chicago Council on Global Affairs. The survey shows that despite historic differences on issues that even a decade ago were more bipartisan, the American public remains committed to engagement in the world, with 64 percent of Americans supporting an active U.S. role in world affairs.

Identifying Evidence Gaps in Secondary Education
Published September 17, 2015
Research by 3ie, supported by MacArthur in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation, identifies evidence gaps in the application of transferable skills programs in low- and middle-income countries. Transferable skills provide youth with critically needed tools for success in employment, health, and personal well-being. The scoping paper and report reveal needs for evidence in several categories, including teacher training programs and curriculum reform, learner-centered teaching, and institutional management and capacity building.
