Community Organizing as an Education Reform Strategy Series

This powerful series was created by the Annenberg Institute for School Reform and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

"Community organizing for school reform offers an urgently needed alternative to traditional school reform - one that situates schooling issues within larger economic and social systems, directly attends to issues of power, and builds democratic capacity to sustain meaningful reform over the long term (Anyon 2005; Mediratta, Shah & McAlister 2009a; Oakes & Rogers 2006; Shirley 2009)."
