Collaborative Action for Equity and Opportunity: A Practical Guide for School and Community Leaders

Book cover thumbnailApril 2021

Co-authored by EdRedesign Founder and Faculty Director Paul Reville and Research Director Lynne Sacks, this book provides a how-to guide for education, government, and community leaders interested in creating cross-sector systems of support for students. These collaborations strive to close achievement and opportunity gaps and to help children overcome problems stemming from poverty, racism, and other societal ills. In addition to a clear sequential set of implementation steps, Reville and Sacks provide field-tested tools, examples of communities that have undertaken this work, and specific strategies and guidance gleaned from their collaborations with more than thirty communities across the country.
