R&D Funding Policies of the National Institute of Education: Review and Recommendations. Final Report of Consultants to the Director and the National Council on Educational Research.
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Ten consultants were employed by the National Institute of Education (NIE) to examine the state of educational research and development (R&D) with specific reference to the regional laboratories and the R&D centers established in the late 1960's. By confering with NIE officials, surveying the directors of regional laboratories and R&D centers, and questioning other interested educators, the consulting team was able to examine: (1) the nation's capacity to do research in education; (2) the relationship of the style of funding to the quality of research; and (3) the potential effects of alternative methods of funding. The report concludes with an extensive list of recommendations for legislators, researchers, and educators. (EMH)
