Research Partnerships Are Key to Improving Practice

States and districts face challenges around the construction, production, and use of research in education. And the most helpful research for educators to put into practice examines the landscape of education and identifies strategies that are proven to help students succeed. Research partnerships – diverse partnerships that bring education researchers and practitioners together to create and use evidence to inform practice – provide leaders the evidence-based information they need to benefit students. DQC’s fact sheet details how research partnerships can benefit states and districts, and lays out the core characteristics and drivers of research partnerships.
