This chapter promotes the imperative to create paths through which neuroscientists, biologists, and other research scientists have opportunities to work directly with educators. It presents a vision of how the concept of a “research school” can be conveyed in current educational debates, seeing as how students and practitioners are often left out of the important conversations about education. The chapter refers to the “culture of openness” at Ross as part of what makes it an ideal place to develop a partnership between scholars and practitioners. In identifying the collaborative structures created between Ross and the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the chapter demonstrates aspects of the Ross model that are pioneering in the field of education.
