The Conduct of Research in Schools: How to Say No.
Barber, Larry W.
The purpose of this paper is to examine the need for various classes and types of research in local school districts in collaboration with external researchers. It defines research and then argues the need to support basic research as well as applied research in schools. It provides a few definitions of various types and classes of research to show how knowledge of the differences can influence the types of research a school district might engage in. The paper concludes with suggestions to school districts on how and when to say no to proposed research in their schools and a description of a research review committee. (Author/LD)
