Sociological and Political Concerns about School Effectiveness Research: Time for a New Research Agenda.
Thrupp, Martin
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v12 n1 p7-40 Mar 2001
School-effectiveness research (SER) has been criticized for being a socially and politically decontextualized body of literature that supports inequitable reforms. Critics rightly address several problems within the SER field: overclaiming (that furthers the Right's political/social agenda), continued undertheorizing, and inability to control political use of its findings.
