This forum provides policymakers with insights on how research can be used to help urban schools succeed. Current research activity, both domestic and international, helps us to understand what is needed to help principals successfully lead, teachers to effectively teach, and students to highly achieve. Specifically, panelists will explore options grounded in research for empowering Detroit public schools as well as all urban schools to demonstrate how Michigan may serve as a national model for urban education.
