Facts and Fantasies of Education.
The relevance of research to educational ideas is discussed in this paper. General ways of organizing education in matters of theory, policy, or practice, and methodology are the "fantasies" analyzed; the need for research to produce the evidence that will convert these fantasies to fact is emphasized. A research example from elementary mathematics is briefly discussed, with technical details included in the appendix. (DT)
