2024 NERA Conference, Oct 8 -10, Trumbull, Connecticut
Theme: Promoting Social Responsibility in Educational Research

In the ever-changing world of education and educational research, we need to continually self-reflect and be reminded of the fundamental reasons and motivations for why we have chosen to work in this field and the responsibilities that come with it. We always need to remember we primarily serve learners of all types. This requires us to always question the status quo with clear intent, collaborate with diverse groups of people representing different races, ethnicities, gender identities, cultural backgrounds, expertise, and experiences, ensure we collect the appropriate data from the appropriate constituencies while embracing and promoting intersectionality, be explicit about the methods we use, and openly and transparently communicate the results we find, whether these are significant, not significant, or inconclusive. Our ability to succeed is dependent on continuously working to maintain strong and healthy communities of practice, ensuring all stakeholders' voices are heard and represented, so that we support positive changes in social responsibility both in the field of education research and in society as a whole. Let us join together in this journey of rediscovery and recommitment to our shared values and mission as an organization.
