Addressing inequity through youth participatory action research: Toward a critically hopeful approach to more equitable schools

Abstract provided on behalf of the authors: Nicole Mittenfelner Carl and Sharon M Ravitch

In this paper, we explore how youth participatory action research methods serve as a means of uncovering and addressing hidden curricula in schools. To illuminate, we present an example of one school-based youth participatory action research project in which high school students examined racism and sexism in their school. We discuss both the successes and challenges of youth participatory action research as a methodological approach to address inequity in schools.
