The cover story spotlights "The Road to Zero" — a project in which RAND researchers set forth a strategy for achieving zero roadway deaths over the next three decades. A second feature highlights RAND's evaluation of The Wallace Foundation's Principal Pipeline Initiative, which RAND finds to be a feasible, affordable, and effective way for districts to improve schools and student achievement. A third story describes efforts to enhance equity in the city of Pittsburgh by using data and performance measures to prioritize investments, reduce disparities, and improve outcomes. The Q&A features senior political scientist Jennifer Kavanagh, whose recent project, News in a Digital Age, compares the presentation of news information over time and across media platforms. In this issue's Commentary column, retired USCG Vice Adm. Robert C. Parker shares why women belong in Coast Guard crews.
