The Role of the American Research University in Advancing System-Wide Education Reform, Democratic Schooling, and Democracy


by Lee Benson & Ira Harkavy 2003

Community-higher education-school partnerships should be the core strategy for improving schools and schooling systems from pre-K through college. We base our argument on two propositions: 1) committed, multi-sectoral community partnerships are a prerequisite for sustained school- and system-wide educational reform, and without such partnerships, meaningful educational reform will not happen, and 2) sustained, system-wide educational reform requires transforming the educational system from pre-K through colleges and universities. Therefore, higher educational institutions must be partners in and strategic components of sustained, system-wide educational reform.
