Mayer, Richard E.
Educational Researcher, v29 n6 p38-39 Aug-Sep 2000
Offers two reasons for keeping educational research firmly within the domain of science: to maintain self-correcting progress for educational theory and to maintain the reputation of educational research as a scientific enterprise. Suggests that a possible reconciliation to the two sides on this issue is to use quantitative and qualitative data in scientific ways. (SM)
