This episode highlights the work of Dr. Amanda Datnow, Professor in the Department of Education Studies and Associate Dean of the Division of Social Sciences at the University of California, San Diego. Amanda’s research focuses on educational reform and policy, particularly with regard to issues of equity and the professional lives of educators. I was drawn to Amanda’s work as I searched through research on data use and equity in the K12 space, and this serves as the foundation for our conversation. Amanda has done extensive research on how to use data to address issues of inequity in elementary and secondary classrooms. She has published numerous books, her most recent being Professional Collaboration with Purpose: Teacher Learning for Equity and Excellence (2019), which she co-authored with Vicki Park.
