Scholar-Practitioner Partnerships Eyed by 19 Districts

I'm in Chicago today, where the Consortium on Chicago School Research is holding a two-day confab for educators and researchers looking to start partnerships between school districts and researchers similar to the Chicago model. In a testament to the growing interest in that model, representatives from 19 districts around the country have showed up for the event. (It probably doesn't hurt matters, of course, that the consortium's director, John Q. Easton, is President Obama's pick to head the federal Institute of Education Sciences, the key research arm of the U.S. Department of Education.)
Look for a more comprehensive story on the goings-on here later on in Education Week.
