Working together on critical issues

HERC uses a partnership research model – a jointly developed research agenda that involves both researchers and school district leaders working together on critical issues to improve educational equity.
HERC follows a long-term, rather than project-based, collaboration to solve longstanding problems with a focus on informing decision-makers directly.
