The Paradox of Case Study.
Simons, Helen
Cambridge Journal of Education, v26 n2 p225-40 Jun 1996
Examines the paradox of case studies' abilities to understand the complexity in particular contexts while not being generalizable. Argues that the pressure for quantification and multisite case study design in policy research has weakened the original utility of the case study method for understanding complex educational phenomena.
