Abstract

Matthew Chingos, director of the Urban Institute’s Education Policy Program, testified before the Council of the District of Columbia on efforts to create an independent research-practice partnership with the District’s education agencies. He testified that a successful research-practice partnership must be independent, conduct high-quality research, and collaborate with administrators and practitioners. His testimony also highlighted remaining decisions, including how to turn these core principles into an operational partnership that will help address the challenges DC’s education system faces.
