Miami-Dade County Public Schools: The Hidden Truth

Using a Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) approach developed with support from a doctoral student from the University of Colorado, members of Power U conducted a survey to capture how young people in MDCPS are experiencing school and provide insight about student treatment in schools and in Student schools and in Student Success Centers. By pairing this data with a quantitative analysis of MDCPS’ discipline data, they developed a report card, grading the district on how well it supports students.
