High School & Beyond 2020


The U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has contracted EurekaFacts, a social science research firm, to administer an important study. Become part of the High School and Beyond 2020 (HS&B:20) study, which looks at how students progress through high school to post-secondary education and/or into the workforce. 

We need your help. We are looking for teachers, staff, counselors, and principals at schools that work with 9th through 12th grade students to participate in a research interview. 

You will receive a $50 gift card from a major credit card company at the end of the interview session as a thank you for your participation.  

Your interview will last between 30-60 minutes and can be scheduled at your convenience. Early mornings, after school, evening, and weekend times are available. Some of the interviews will be conducted via online conferencing (Skype), some will be held at the EurekaFacts office in Rockville, MD, and some may occur at your school. 

During the interview, you will complete a set of survey questions and be asked how you interpreted each question and how you came up with your answers. Because we care about your privacy, we will assign you a unique identifier (ID) and your responses will be kept separately from your name.[1] This is a voluntary research study. 

By participating in this research interview, you will help evaluate questions for the HS&B:20 study. You will help NCES collect data on students’ opportunities in high school. These data may benefit future students’ lives as young adults!
