Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago
In June 2013, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago and the Institute for Educational Leadership convened a group of stakeholders, researchers, and practitioners in Washington, DC. The group discussed the role of partnerships in advancing educational opportunities for low-income children and youth in the United States. They examined topics including who participates in partnerships, what the purposes of partnerships are, and where resources for partnerships come from. The convening also discussed four next steps for policymakers, administrators, and practitioners: leadership, policy support, accountability, and implementation. This summary of the event presents highlights of the keynote speech by Paul Reville, former secretary of education for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Reville has extensive experience with standards-based school reform. He discussed why partnerships are essential for 21st century education reform. The summary also describes five intentional cross-sector collaborations and discusses key questions and next steps in the development of school and community partnerships. A list of participants is included, and throughout the summary participant voices are highlighted.
