On Making a Difference.
Slavin, Robert E.
Educational Researcher, v19 n3 p30-34,44 Apr 1990
Explores reasons for the tenuous relationship between educational research and educational practice. Suggests changes in research and policy to bring educational research directly to bear on educational problems. The major problem is that researchers are searching for variables that relate to improved outcomes, whereas educational innovators are searching for models. (JS)
