Moneyball Principles

We believe that government at all levels should help improve outcomes for young people, their families and communities by:

  • Building evidence about the practices, policies and programs that will achieve the most effective and efficient results so that policymakers can make better decisions;
  • Investing limited taxpayer dollars in practices, policies and programs that use data, evidence and evaluation to demonstrate they work; and
  • Directing funds away from practices, policies, and programs that consistently fail to achieve measurable outcomes.
