The Houston Education Research Consortium
The Houston Education Research Consortium (HERC) is a research partnership between Rice University and the Houston Independent School District (HISD), the largest district in Texas and the seventh largest in the United States. HERC brings together education researchers and education decision makers to work to ensure that all children have access to a high quality education, regardless of their economic status or where they live. HERC’s research agenda is informed by the needs of local education leaders, and the decisions of these leaders are informed by the research produced by HERC and its affiliates.
