EdFix Podcast


This is EdFix, a podcast about the practice and promise of education. Michael Feuer, host and Dean of GW's Graduate School of Education and Human Development, talks with the people who care about what’s needed to improve our schools and colleges. Researchers, practitioners, and policymakers share effective strategies and provocative ideas. And he explores ways to connect their worlds to take on some of education’s most complex issues.

Education is the greatest contributor to ​​our nation's economic and social progress. It requires knowledge, agility, and optimism ​from many sources in order to learn from ​our successes and to address ​what might not be working up to potential. ​From preschool to postsecondary, get your fix with EdFix!

Research-Practice Partnerships (RPPs) create a two-way street between practitioners and researchers to address problems of practice and come up with solutions. Using this research, leaders can make data-informed decisions about the strategies that really work to improve their schools and school districts. Ruth Wattenberg, recently re-elected member of the DC State Board of Education, and Dr. Elizabeth Grant, education policy professor, discuss the benefits and challenges of a potential RPP for Washington, DC in this episode of EdFix.
