Three Pressing Concerns of Educational Research.
Gage, N. L.
This paper predicts three directions toward which educational research should focus in the future. First, education for the culturally disadvantaged needs new ideas that will produce effects of whose educational significance there can be no doubt. The group forces that Bronfenbrenner has described as being at the basis of Soviet methods of character education may produce this kind of effect. Second, the field of educational research needs improved ways of combating the obsolescence of its workers. The formal, organized training program for senior research workers may fill an important part of this need. Third, new relationships between research and development are needed so that research may make a more positive and substantial contribution to development. (Author/RT)
