Ranis, Sheri H.; Walters, Pamela Barnhouse
European Educational Research Journal, v3 n4 p795-806 2004
The SSRC-NAE Joint Committee on Education Research, a multidisciplinary group formed in 2001, initiated an investigation of the complex and sprawling field of American education research organized into three general domains of inquiry: the social organization of education research, an assessment of the quality of education research, and a consideration of the politics and policy implications of education research. This article describes the organization of this effort, summarizes the major themes discussed, and describes the resources gathered and research projects suggested by these deliberations. (Contains 4 notes and 2 online resources.)
