Kahlenberg, Richard D. – American Educator, 2015
Teacher tenure rights, first established more than a century ago, are under unprecedented attack. Tenure--which was enacted to protect students' education and those who provide it--is under assault from coast to coast, in state legislatures, in state courtrooms, and in the media.

Lingard, Bob – Critical Studies in Education, 2013
Currently, when there is a lot of political talk about the need for "evidence-based policy", and when public policy seeks to calibrate research quality and impact, there is a pressing need to reconsider the relationships between education/al research and education policy.

Lingenfelter, Paul E. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2011
Researchers, policy makers, and practitioners share a sincere interest in improving the human condition.

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book "Outliers," describes how studies of expertise consistently show that 10,000 hours of practice in a discipline is required for true mastery.
