The South Florida Education Research Conference (SFERC)

Honoring Inquiry; Promoting Mentoring; Fostering Scholarship

The 14th Annual South Florida Education Research Conference (SFERC)

Building partnerships between local education authorities (LEAs) and education researchers in their respective communities is a current priority of national education advocates (e.g., AERA) and federal funders, such as the Institute of Education Sciences. The South Florida Education Research Alliance (SFERA) is a unique partnership of education researchers from private and public universities, an urban school district, and a local children's services organization dedicated to facilitating the academic success of students in South Florida (Ligas, et al., 2012). Now in its third year, the partnership claims a number of successes such as SFERA's role in Broward County Public School's (BCPS) Black Male Success Task Initiative (BMSI), designed to support interventions for at-risk students. Panelists will include members of SFERA institutions, which include Broward County Public Schools, Children's Services Council of Broward, Florida Atlantic University, Barry University, Florida International University, and Nova Southeastern University.
