Praise

Turn a gaggle of scholars loose on a vital subject—the relation of education research to education practice—and if you are lucky, you get a collection like this. It draws on the authors’ long experience and reams of research to provide lessons worth pondering by everybody from the Congress to the classroom. — Carol Hirschon Weiss, Beatrice B. Whiting Professor, Emerita, Harvard Graduate School of Education

With all the fuss about evidence-based decision making, The Role of Research in Educational Improvement makes a stellar contribution. The chapters cover the full range of issues from federal, state, district, and school levels. In each case instruction is the focus. This invaluable resource, at once comprehensive and focused, unravels the mystery of research and makes it accessible. A great read whether you are in the schoolhouse or the statehouse. — Michael Fullan, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto
