"Comments on Bulterman-Bos": Education Research as a Distributed Activity across Universities
Lagemann, Ellen Condliffe
Educational Researcher, v37 n7 p424-428 2008
In response to Bulterman-Bos (2008), this article discusses three kinds of research needed in education: problem-finding research, which helps frame good research questions; problem-solving research, which helps illuminate educational problems; and translational work, which transforms the findings of research into tools that practitioners and policy makers need. Clinical research is most important as a form of problem-finding study. Although it is best carried on in "ed schools," other kinds of education research are best done in other faculties. For this reason, education research should be a distributed activity, encouraged across all the faculties of research universities.
