Eric Grodsky co-directs a research-practice partnership with the Madison Metropolitan School District (the Madison Education Partnership) and is the university principal investigator on a partnership with the state’s Department of Public Instruction. Both partnerships include a primary focus on educational equity. These collaborative projects covers a broad range of the life course, from descriptive projects on inequalities in literacy at Kindergarten entry and on the association between enrollment in four-year-old Kindergarten and Kindergarten readiness, to a project on the contributions of high schools to economic inequalities in college attendance and completion. More recently, the Madison Education Partnership has explored the potential of home visits with Kindergarten teachers to improve the transition from four-year-old to five-year-old Kindergarten (with support from the Spencer Foundation) and is currently in the field collecting data for a project on professional development for teachers in the four-year-old Kindergarten program (with support from the U.S Department of Education’s Institute for Education Sciences).
