The Organization and Funding of Educational Research in England and Wales.
This chapter characterizes the educational research efforts of England and Wales as unplanned, unsystematic, and in the hands of a wide range of organizations with a variety of forms of funding. The development and activities of the Social Science Research Council, the Ministry of Education's Department of Education and Science, the Schools Council for Curriculum and Examinations, the National Foundation for Educational Research, and a number of independent foundations are reviewed, with particular reference to recent developments. It is noted that the major impact of educational research in England and Wales is in its sensitization of those involved in education to the full scope and true features of the problems affecting education. It is concluded that the framework, resources, and sympathetic political and professional climate necessary for research to prosper are not currently provided. (PGD)
