I really enjoyed Street Data. It’s an introduction to qualitative / action research in education with a strong equity lens. I highly recommend it!
Hope you’re reading something fun too!
Street Data was the focus of a recent New Tech Network leadership summit and Shane Safir was our keynote speaker. The way she distinguishes between traditional data such as test scores, attendance, graduation rates, deeper data such as survey results, and the data we collect every day in interactions with students is so enlightening.
