Improving College & Career Outcomes through Research-Practice Partnerships
A Case Study of ILP Implementation in Three Gateway City School Districts
Public schools are under pressure to close wide opportunity and achievement gaps so that disadvantaged students can compete for jobs in today’s knowledge economy on an equal footing. While the resources to accomplish this important work are often limited, advances in education technology, data availability, and research methods can help schools get more learning out of every dollar. This case study examines an effort to build research- practice partnerships to take advantage of these new analytical opportunities.
