The COE Research Consortium (COERC) is a service of the Francis Marion University Center of Excellence to Prepare Teachers of Children of Poverty provided to Center Partner School Districts and to research scholars and other educators, especially in South Carolina universities and colleges. It is designed to support collaborative efforts to address the conduct of systematic, disciplined inquiry into public education, especially as it relates to the academic success of children of poverty. COERC believes that research has value, primarily when it is used to improve school programs and professional practice.
