The Reading Problem: A Time for Dual Accountability - The School Board and the Community [And Protecting Human Rights in Educational Research.]
Mori, Allen A.
This paper discusses public education and the individual's rights to a quality education in relation to legal and civil responsibility. The proposed policy entitled "Protection of Human Subjects," issued by the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (DHEW), is discussed in terms of educational research. The policy guidelines suggest that no projects involving risk for human subjects will be funded by DHEW unless the applicant (investigator) has established a peer review team, the results of which must be received by DHEW for further evaluation by the Secretary. It is argued that educational researchers, as part of the larger body of behavioral scientists, must take immediate steps to confront the issues involving the use of human subjects. There must be a concerted effort to establish free-flowing lines of communication, not only within the educational research community, but throughout the public sector as well. The educational research community must develop a code of ethics which protects the rights and dignity of the human subject while fostering the conduct of meaningful, productive research. (TS)
