Educational Research: The Hardest Science of All.
Berliner, David C.
Educational Researcher, v31 n8 p18-20 Nov 2002
Agrees with Feuer, Towne, and Shavelson's article about scientific culture and educational research and with the National Research Council Report upon which it was based, but contends that science does not mean the same thing to everyone, nor have distinctions between educational science and other sciences been well made in either report. Examines such distinctions (the power of contexts, ubiquity of interactions, and "decade by findings" interactions). (SM)
