We’re Thankful for our Educators, Researchers and Funders

The end of November is always crunch time. Between finishing projects, producing research, educating students, fighting for social justice and planning for the holidays, it’s never quiet.

Recognizing this reality makes the team at KnowledgeWorks’ Student-Centered Learning Research Collaborative especially grateful for our inspiring Distinguished Fellowsresearchers and funders who came out to New York City to ask and answer some of the biggest questions about student-centered learning.

We were lucky enough to see two student-centered schools and hear from the students about what a mastery-based education means to them.

We were grateful to be able to hear from educators about their experience working in mastery-based schools, including the ways they work together to create student-centered learning experiences and supports for their students.

And we are especially thankful to the teams of researchers, Distinguished Fellows and funders who modeled vulnerability, a strong desire to learn and a sense of urgency as we collectively foreground equity in our mission to democratize research and rebuild education systems.

From all of us at the Research Collaborative, Happy Thanksgiving. We are thankful for you.

This blog is part of the Student-Centered Learning Research Collaborative Equity Series by JFF and KnowledgeWorks and created with support from its funders. Learn more about this work.
