About This Site

From 2012 to 2014, the William T. Grant Foundation, in collaboration with the Forum for Youth Investment (FYI), convened a learning community aimed at strengthening research-practice partnerships in education. The learning community, which met twice annually for two years, involved partnerships of researchers and school district leaders from across the nation. The lessons learned, as well as the distinct perspectives and expertise of all the participants are reflected throughout this site. We thank FYI for their commitment and Alicia Wilson-Ahlstrom of FYI for succinctly capturing the participants’ contributions to this important work.
