Taking Stock/Making Change: School District of Philadelphia and the Center for Urban Ethnography, University of Pennsylvania. An Action Research Project

Released January 1, 1998

Taking Stock/Making Change was a collaboration between RFA and the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Urban Ethnography which supported study teams in five Philadelphia elementary and middle schools in their efforts to connect self-assessment to school restructuring. The self-study teams describe their work in a series of case studies that were disseminated to both local and national audiences. The project was funded as part of the Knight Foundation’s Excellence in Education grants.
