Summary expansion
The state of America's schools is a major concern of policymakers, educators, and parents, and new programs and ideas are constantly proposed to improve it. Yet few of these programs and ideas are based on strong research about students and teachers -- about learning and teaching. Improving Student Learning responds by proposing an ambitious and extraordinary plan: a strategic education research program that would focus on four key questions: -- How can advances in research on learning be incorporated into educational practice? -- How can student engagement in learning be increased? -- How can schools become organizations of continuous improvement? -- How can the use of research knowledge be increased in schools? This book is the springboard for a year-long discussion among educators, researchers, policymakers, and the potential funders-federal, state, and private -- of the proposed a strategic education research program. The committee offers suggestions for designing, organizing, and managing an effective strategic education research program by building a structure of interrelated networks
