Satan or Savior? An Analysis of Two Decades of School Effectiveness Research.
Townsend, Tony
School Effectiveness and School Improvement, v12 n1 p115-29 Mar 2001
Examines criticisms of school-effectiveness research (SER) in two papers by Martin Thrupp and by Roger Slee and Gaby Weiner in this special issue. Despite critics' focus on SER's overclaiming, undertheorizing, and political ineptitude, the main issue seems to be researchers' dismissive attitudes and their suppression of scholarly debate. (Contains 15 references.) (MLH)
