Reframing Reform Through Education Research : How Communications Science Can Advance Education Reform
About this item
Translating empirical research to achievable policy reform is one of the most difficult challenges that education researchers face, and this book teaches them how to successfully effect change with their work. Education scientists know that having a solid research base is not enough to spark change and enact reform. They are often frustrated by the gap between what we know and what we do in the field of education. In this book, researchers from the FrameWorks Institute use communication science to teach education scholars how to frame their work so that it can have an impact on policy. They cover how to start, what to emphasize, what to leave unsaid, and how to make the "whys and hows" of education reform as "sticky" and memorable, as possible.
