Can Research Be Used to Help Improve Urban Schools?

For the last semester, 20 NYU graduate students have been engaged in research specifically designed to help urban schools. In most cases, the questions that are the focus of these projects emerged out of conversations with school staff and parents. The goal was to engage in research with educators, parents and students so that the inquiry process could contribute to larger efforts to promote change and improvement. Please join Dr. Pedro Noguera and his students for a presentation of their research:
