An Evaluation of a Strategy for Bringng Social Science to Bear on Organizational Decision-Making.
Persell, Caroline H.
To incorporate ideas from the sociology of science into the policy-making activities of the American Educational Research Association, a colloquium was held consisting of AERA planning committee members, executive officers, council members, and scholars from the sociology of science. This colloquium was specifically designed to help the planning committee members make recommendations to the council. Among the major ideas coming from these meetings were the following: Two resulted in favorable action--new AERA publications, and improving relations with the Federal Government; two are pending additional information--improving the research climate in schools of education, and initiating research in educational development; and one appears to have been permanently tabled-association reorganization. Committee members indicated that the colloquium satisfactorily accomplished its objective of providing ideas to the committee. (RA)
