Investing in Learning: A Policy Statement with Recommendations on Research in Education. Investing in Research: A Second Policy Statement with Further Recommendations for Research in Education.
National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board (ED/OERI), Washington, DC.
This document unites two comprehensive policy statements by the National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board. "Investing in Learning" was first published in June 1999 and the followup, "Investing in Research," is published for the first time in this volume. "Investing in Learning" follows a thematic approach in establishing research goals and objectives that will support a high level of achievement for all students. Recommendations are grouped into these areas: (1) priorities are set and activities are problem centered; (2) high standards of quality are created and upheld; (3) work is collaborative and rigorous; (4) design for rigorous research; and (5) mission is congruent with resources. "Investing in Research" takes a more pragmatic approach in pointing out where improvements might be made in existing institutions and where new arrangements are needed to promote knowledge development and to apply research findings to high priority areas. This set of policy recommendations addresses the urgency of increased rigor in education research, questions about the federal government's organizational arrangements, and the policy setting and leadership functions for research.
