Samaroo, Julia; Dahya, Negin; Alidina, Shahnaaz
Canadian Journal of Education, v36 n3 438-457 2013
This paper discusses the significance of conducting respectful research within urban schools, using the example of one large-scale university-school board partnership in northwestern Toronto. The authors, three research assistants on the project, use their experiences within three of the participating schools to interrogate the research approach and methods involved and highlight the challenges of conducting respectful research. The paper outlines how aspects of respectful research were both included and overlooked within the research project. The authors' critical reflection builds on the existing conception of respectful research with the added inclusion of accountability as a primary focus, derived from existing work in decolonizing research methodologies.
