Welcome to the 2023 Inquiries and Investigations Symposium — an annual event devoted to bringing together partners from P.K. Yonge, the UF College of Education at large, the UF School of Teaching and Learning, and interested researchers and developers across the UF campus and beyond. Following a two-year hiatus due to the COVID19 pandemic, we are thrilled to be able to re-engage with each other and our partners outside of P.K. Yonge. We come together to take our wonderings and reflections public with one another, while we explore theories of action that can support equitable learning opportunities and outcomes at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School. With a statutory mission to design, test, and disseminate what we learn through serving an intentionally diverse student population, we rely on partnerships on the school campus, between campuses, and beyond the campus to help inform and transform work underway.
P.K. Yonge’s school vision is to graduate every student as a creative, dedicated, and resilient learner who embraces the power of diverse ideas, talents, and cultures to improve our world. Our P.K. “Why” challenges us to learn how to work as a K-12 system to graduate 100% of our diverse student population college- and career-ready, no matter who they are or where they come from. P.K. Yonge embraces equity, inclusivity, mastery, and agency as the drivers in our system’s transformation. P.K. Yonge’s motto is collaborating to meet the needs of each student. Together we are weaving a tapestry that will improve outcomes and opportunities for all students; we are not sewing a patchwork quilt of change ideas and strategies. With our stakeholders and partners, we are informing and transforming P.K. Yonge’s K-12 system through teacher learning as we endeavor to go from good to great!
