Parallel Worlds of Education and Medicine: Art, Science, and Evidence
Johnson, Eileen
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v3 n1 Jan-Jun 2008
The No Child Left Behind Act is comprised of four pillars, one of which is "proven education methods." This paper attempts to provide a historical context for the development of evidence-based education by examining its foundation in medical practice. Next, the rationale for evidence of educational effectiveness based on a scientific "gold standard," the randomized controlled trial (RCT), is explored and the relative limitations of this approach are outlined. Finally, important distinctions between medicine and education are explained.
