Building Knowledge for a Nation of Learners: A Framework for Education Research 1997. A Report by the Assistant Secretary, Office of Educational Research and Improvement, Sharon P. Robinson, and the National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board.
Office of Educational Research and Improvement (ED), Washington, DC.; National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board (ED/OERI), Washington, DC.
This report, first of a biennial series, establishes national priorities for education research. The priorities reflect the ideas and concerns of students, parents, educators, community members, policymakers, and researchers. The seven national priorities that are defined are: (1) improving learning and development in early childhood; (2) improving curriculum, instruction, assessment, and student learning at all levels of education; (3) ensuring effective teaching by expanding the supply of potential teachers, improving teacher preparation, and promoting career-long professional development at all levels of education; (4) strengthening schools; (5) supporting schools to prepare diverse populations to meet high standards; (6) promoting learning in informal and formal settings; and (7) understanding the changing requirements for adult competence. Within each of these priorities, it will be essential to ensure equity and reflect diversity, stress the importance of the family, and fulfill the promise of educational technology. These priorities proceed from the belief that public schools should become more public in spirit and in practice. (Contains 114 references.) (SLD)
