18.059-5 - Beyond "Gap-Gazing": Research-Practice Partnerships for Racial Equity in Education

Fri, April 5, 2:25 to 3:55pm, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Floor: 800 Level, Hall F

Session Type: Roundtable Session

Abstract

Research has documented pervasive racial disparities in education, often in tandem with other marginalized identities, and evidenced in outcomes such as discipline, learning opportunities, achievement and graduation (Fergus & Noguera, 2011). Rather than only documenting inequities and the forms in which they operate, scholars call for research to intervene in inequities and transform systems to foster greater equity (Carter & Reardon, 2014). Research-practice partnerships (RPPs) between researchers, educators, and communities represent a promising strategy for addressing this imperative, yet few RPPs center racial inequities in systems change. This symposium offers insights from racial equity-focused RPPs that move beyond “gap-gazing” towards research and collective action to disrupt the mechanisms that result in inequitable outcomes for minoritized youth in US education.
