Democratizing Evidence in Education

Published by: Routledge; a chapter in 'Connecting Research and Practice for Educational Improvement' (2018)

This chapter lays out a case for democratizing evidence in education. The authors explore what a more democratic evidence movement might look like in the years ahead. Discussing both efforts to build and use evidence in U.S. education over the past 15 years and the palpable desire that exists today to make this work more inclusive, the authors write: “Going forward, we believe that the movement for evidence in education could accomplish much more by aligning our efforts with democratic principles. We must aim for a more engaged and evidence-informed ‘citizenry’ in which different stakeholders can meaningfully participate in the production and use of data and research evidence to inform educational improvement.”
