The Case for a Modern Doctor of Education Degree (Ed.D.): Multipurpose Education Doctorates No Longer Appropriate
Guthrie, James W.
Peabody Journal of Education, v84 n1 p3-8 Jan 2009
Educational research and professional practice, though assuredly capable of providing reciprocal benefits one to the other, have, nevertheless, evolved into decidedly different activities. Increasingly, each has a separate and defensible technical basis. Doctoral programs in education should honor and reflect, not conflate, the differences. The Ed.D. is now deserving of prominent billing as the degree of choice for education practitioners.
