We are pleased to announce that the Gardner Center has joined the National Network of Education Research-Practice Partnerships (NNERPP). Launched by the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University in January 2016, NNERP aims to support and develop partnerships between education agencies and research institutions in order to improve the connections between research, policy and practice. We look forward to learning from and contributing to the NNERPP blog on EdWeek and participating in the annual forum. At this gathering, researchers, practitioners, funders, and relevant policy and advocacy groups come together to discuss challenges, successes, and opportunities related to education research-practice partnerships. Check out this list to get acquainted with the work of our fellow members.
