A Paper on Critical Issues Facing State Education Agencies in Supporting Educational Research: One Chief's Perspective by Mark R Shedd( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To reflect the changing technological and social demands of the society in which it exists, education must develop and alter its goals. Critical to this process is educational research in the areas of program evaluation, environmental influences and resource availability. Federal investment in National Institute of Education (nie) activities and other research programs can serve to make education more cost-effective. Education is at the center of economic recovery. Nie is capable of conducting long-term research beyond the resources of individual states, and is a valuable source of information on effective educational practice. Given the Block Grants Reform, the chances of reduced federal support for research is high. Without this funding Connecticuts' commitment to educational research is jeopardized. In this event, Connecticut will only be able to commit itself to priority research programs involving: disadvantaged students; minorities; the handicapped; English as a Second Language; and the evaluation of the instructional effectiveness of schools. Information sharing between policy makers in local, state, and federal government may serve to stress important areas of educational research, and aid the development of a more effective system of data collection, retrieval and dissemination.

Racial and social problems of the big northern cities will increasingly spread to the suburbs. Educators must be prepared to deal effectively with them.

Prekindergarten, reading special counseling and guidance, curriculum reconstruction, and expanded adult education programs and projects have been introduced and initiated. Future plans and sources of aid and ideas were discussed. This article is published in the "harvard graduate school of education bulletin," volume 9, winter, 1964-65
