Bridging Research and Education Organizing: Can We Strengthen Our Combined Power?

Summary: 

The role of research in education change work takes on different meanings for
community organizing groups and research-based organizations.

Description: 

Justice Matters Institute, a San Francisco-based research
organization, has encountered major questions related to the role of research
in education organizing. Interviews with
organizing groups and organizations that provide technical support to such
groups pushed us to question assumptions underlying our work. We found that the role of research in
education change work takes on different meanings for community organizing
groups and research-based organizations.
This paper explores the implications of each research approach for
education change efforts. Bridging the
two fields by using research findings while maintaining organizing principles
and frameworks can strengthen our combined power for education change.
