Journal of Literacy Research, v33 n4 p707-25 Dec 2001
Addresses the relationships of qualitative researchers to the policy-making process. Uses the example of the Reading Excellence Act to demonstrate that qualitative researchers have many points of access to the policy-making process. Suggests qualitative researchers must provide relevant information, communicate in a straightforward manner, understand the conditions of policy making, offer positive solutions, and be prepared to compromise.
