A Needed Reorientation of Educational Research for Educational Planning.
Cook, Desmond L.
To be more useful in educational planning, educational research must be (1) more broadly conceived to incorporate tasks and techniques from disciplines outside of education, (2) more systematic in the sense that both research and development must be more programmatic in nature, and (3) reoriented so that the results of research, whether called basic, applied, or action, should suggest alternatives in educational planning. Forces which should cause these hypotheses to happen are (1) the entry of the business field into the educational enterprise, (2) the fact that Federal support for education is becoming more program-oriented, and (3) the increasing use in education of new systems analysis and program budgeting tools.
