Research

Researched by more than 30 institutions during the last two decades, Success for All has been found to increase reading achievement, cut the achievement gap between African Americans, Hispanic, and white students, and prepare teachers to support the needs of English learners.

The original Success for All approach, developed in 1986 at Johns Hopkins University, is based on best practices across education. Its implementation has been thoroughly evaluated and proven to be replicable for student achievement in more than 30 research studies, most of which were done by independent researchers. SFAF maintains close links with researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Education, where our founders continue as faculty members.
