Abstract

The paper responds to three charges:

1. Educational research has not made a contribution to instructional practice because researchers produce articles in journals rather than viable, well-engineered, instructional products,

2. Educational researchers are training teachers who simply accept prevailing educational practices instead of teachers who are able to experiment and evaluate.

3. Even if s/he wanted to do something dramatic, the educational researcher has no experimental schools to use as laboratories.

Keywords: educational research, educational policy, educational change, educational reform
