Payoffs of Long-Term Investment in Education Research

On Monday, February 14, 2011, the Education Deans Alliance, American Educational Research Association, and the National Academy of Education co-sponsored a Capitol Hill Briefing on the Payoffs of Long-Term Investment in Education Research.

Education research based on long-term funding has led to important payoffs for education policy and practice in such areas as resource allocation, school and classroom organization, and the education and evaluation of teachers. At this briefing, lead scientists from four major studies illustrated the yield from sustained programs of education research, and described the conditions necessary to produce research that matters.
