DARE (Dynamic Action Research in Education) was founded in 2013 by researcher & activist Dara Barlin based on two inter-weaving principles:
- Efforts that seek positive change have greater levels of success when there is an ongoing connection between research in the field and action on-the-ground
- For deep, genuine and sustainable improvements to take place, we must first tackle two of the greatest obstacles to reform – fear of change and force of habit.
The DARE Consulting team builds on these principals by helping educators and activists create strong links between research and action as a daily practice, while creating an atmosphere of trust, rigor, and joy during the change process. The result is a clearer vision for what type of change is necessary, and a wiser, more courageous and more passionate group of leaders to put those changes in motion.
