A robust body of geographic education policy research has been amassing over the past 25 years, as researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds have recognized the value of examining education phenomena from a spatial perspective. In this chapter, I synthesize 42 studies that examine education issues using a geographic information…

Yurkofsky, Maxwell M.; Peterson, Amelia J.; Mehta, Jal D.; Horwitz-Willis, Rebecca; Frumin, Kim M. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
As a result of the frustration with the dominant "What Works" paradigm of large-scale research-based improvement, practitioners, researchers, foundations, and policymakers are increasingly embracing a set of ideas and practices that can be collectively labeled continuous improvement (CI) methods. This chapter provides a comparative…

Froehlich, Dominik E.; Van Waes, Sara; Schäfer, Hannah – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Social network analysis (SNA) is becoming a prevalent method in education research and practice. But criticism has been voiced against the heavy reliance on quantification within SNA. Recent work suggests combining quantitative and qualitative approaches in SNA--mixed methods social network analysis (MMSNA)--as a remedy. MMSNA is helpful for…

Hammond, J. W.; Moss, Pamela A.; Huynh, Minh Q.; Lagoze, Carl – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Research syntheses provide one means of managing the proliferation of research knowledge by integrating learnings across primary research studies. What it means to appropriately synthesize research, however, remains a matter of debate: Syntheses can assume a variety of forms, each with important implications for the shape knowledge takes and the…

Gopalan, Maithreyi; Rosinger, Kelly; Ahn, Jee Bin – Review of Research in Education, 2020
In the past few decades, we have seen a rapid proliferation in the use of quasi-experimental research designs in education research. This trend, stemming in part from the "credibility revolution" in the social sciences, particularly economics, is notable along with the increasing use of randomized controlled trials in the strive toward…

Agosto, Vonzell; Roland, Ericka – Review of Research in Education, 2018
In this review of research, we explore intersectionality in the literature on K-12 educational leadership. We seek to understand how researchers have used intersectionality and what their findings or arguments reveal about the work of leading to reduce inequities in education. We ask, What traditions and trends associated with intersectionality…

Harris, Angela; Leonardo, Zeus – Review of Research in Education, 2018
In this chapter, we unpack "intersectionality as an analytical framework." First, we cite Black Lives Matter as an impetus for discussing intersectionality's current traction. Second, we review the genealogy of "intersectionality" beginning with Kimberlé Crenshaw's formulation, which brought a Black Studies provocation into…
