Research-practice partnerships with Chicago Public Schools
Educational organizations and research institutions need to interrogate historically inequitable and unjust distributions of power and resources in research and the impact those disparities have on our youth and our society. As our district and partnering research institutions actively and intentionally consider the perspectives of the communities at the heart of the research, the resultant research will better serve the educational good. Research-practice partners hips offer an opportunity to examine the myriad ways to address and mitigate some of those inequities. Our session describes nine projects’ equity-centered problem of practice, partnership framework, a summary of results, and will include a narrative of stakeholder power and participation and reflection on how lessons learned create opportunities for the future.
