In Applied Research for Sustainable Change, Sharon M. Ravitch and Nicole Mittenfelner Carl draw on twenty years of teaching and research to offer an incisive guide to practitioner-led qualitative research. They make the case for “local knowledge generation”—inquiry-based, school-level research that can contextualize quantitative data, enrich insight, and guide leaders in making more effective decisions leading to sustainable organizational change.
 

Praise

In an age of data fetishism, this book puts the inquiry back into ‘data use’ and redefines what counts as data for school professionals. Teachers and leaders who want to lead through collaborative learning will cherish this book. — Gary L. Anderson, professor, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, New York University

If you ever struggled with how to effectively design and lead a research team, then look no further because Applied Research for Sustainable Change has developed the road map. The strategies laid out in this book provide all that you and your colleagues will need to become a true applied research team. — Wagner Marseille, superintendent of schools, Cheltenham School District, Pennsylvania
