Research study aims to facilitate conversation between parents, students, educators
Starting September 24, MASA members have been contacted to participate in a research study on behalf of the Office of K-12 Outreach at Michigan State University (MSU). The Harrison Group, a strategic research firm, is asking superintendents for their help with a study focused on Michigan’s students. The phone survey should last only last 20-25 minutes.
The Harrison Group introduced the study at a recent Education Alliance of Michigan meeting, and MASA, along with the other Alliance members, were enthusiastic about this project and were hopeful that the educators they represent would participate.
The project hopes to facilitate a conversation between students, parents and educators so that all stakeholder groups better understand each other’s points of view as they work together for Michigan’s students. Specifically, the project aims to determine how to better ensure that students come to the classroom motivated to learn.
Participation is completely anonymous, and your answers will not be tied back to you or your district. Teachers, principals, parents and their children are also being asked to participate in this research project and key results of the research will be shared with you once the analysis is complete.
