Policy Research in Education.
Smith, David C.
There are a wide variety of areas in the field of education in which policy studies are needed for the guidance and enlightenment of state policy makers. While there is not an absence of data in these areas, data are limited in scope, are of questionable validity, or are insufficiently powerful to effectively guide the formation of public policy. These areas are: (1) teacher supply and demand; (2) teacher testing and performance; (3) student testing and performance; (4) high school graduation requirements and curriculum; (5) certification requirements; (6) certification extension requirements; and (7) merit pay and career ladder programs. Those who work with policy makers cannot afford to be ignorant of the information that is available, and they have a responsibility to use it effectively. (JD)
