Forward Together: Educational Research to Rebuild and Reimagine Public Education

As our schools and universities begin to assimilate and accommodate to the societal, political, and technological shifts of a post-pandemic era, we are faced with a historic opportunity to reassess, rebuild, repair, rethink, and reimagine the role of research in the future of public education. Throughout the past academic year, Florida schools have faced high-stress situations: ensuring sanitized learning environments, alleviating community concerns, adapting to eLearning, meeting state requirements, addressing socioemotional and motivational needs, bridging widened learning gaps, and managing teacher and administrator burnout.

For research to assert its supportive and innovative function in rebuilding and reimagining our systems of education, it must address its own institutional challenges concerning issues of equity, ethics, social responsibility, methodological transparency, and contextual relevance. Furthermore, educational research must re-establish and strengthen the symbiotic relationship between researchers and practitioners.
