Detroit Education Research Partnership
Collaborative Policy Research
The Detroit Education Research Partnership is a collaboration between researchers at Wayne State University's College of Education and a constellation of community partners interested in improving Detroit schools, including the Detroit Public Schools Community District and the Every School Day Counts Detroit coalition. We work in partnership with schools, community organizations, and policymakers to identify the key problems that impede improvement in Detroit schools. We then collaboratively determine what stakeholders need to know to solve those problems and design research studies to collect, interpret, and disseminate that information to the audiences that need it most. Current research areas include: Chronic Absenteeism and Student Attendance, Student Exit from Detroit, Student Mobility, Early Literacy, and High School Success.
