Participants: From Segregation to Celebration: A Dynamic Methodology that Rebuilds Communities Richard Pelton, Texas State University; Brett Lee, Texas State University; Samuel Garcia, Texas State University This proposal details an approach to community engagement and change through generating spaces for community and educational leaders. This session introduces a dynamic methodology that invokes P-12 and higher education leadership to re-envision the complex settings of urban environments to create spaces of participatory action-based research.  The intent of this critical conversation is to reclaim public spaces through community inquiry. New partnerships, research methods, and pedagogies contextualize practice and introduce viable and sustainable partnerships. Understanding the Desires and Theories of Change for Educational Equity and Justice Frances Free Ramos, Univ of California Berkeley In this study, I will use oral histories to learn more about the desires and theories of action of different community leaders and activists involved in struggles to improve educational access, quality, and outcomes for marginalized communities. How did community members attempt to improve the condition of schooling and of the schools through engaging the district, and when did they shift their focus towards alternative models outside the district? Building A College Ready Community: A Small School with Big Plans and Big Partnerships Nakia M Gray, New York University As the issue of college readiness gains greater attention, schools work to utilize programs and partnerships to redefine what college readiness means in the context of their school community. Through partnerships with CBOs, philanthropist groups, and pre-college transition programs as an important contribution to preparing students for higher education. This qualitative case study offers a perspective into the pre-college transition program information gathering and disseminating practices of a small high school. District Governance in Changing Urban Landscapes: Race and Class Politics of Public-Private Partnerships in District Policymaking René Espinoza Kissell, University of California, Berkeley This qualitative comparative case study of two school districts seeks to understand the race and class politics of community engagement in portfolio management models (PPM). This paper draws on urban regime theory to illustrate how urban political and historical landscapes shape community support for district-level reforms. Data collection includes interviews, observations, and document analysis. Findings from this study will illuminate the connection between urban austerity under state and federal disinvestment and public-private district partnerships. Facilitator: Jada Phelps-Moultrie, Portland State University
