Mark Saul,

I am interested in your comments about the relevance of educational
research. I'm finishing a Ph.D. in mathematics education and about to
begin a career as one of those "educational researchers." All kidding
aside, I do share your concerns that educational research make it back
through the schoolhouse door and be of some value to teachers and students.

What research would you find useful to you as a classroom teacher?

Do you believe that there's a role for basic or pure research in education?

Thanks, Mark. I believe that rather than opening a can of worms, you might
have set the stage for some constructive dialogue.
