The Department of Education places a high value on the wide circulation of research results to ensure that research has the maximum impact on policy and practice in education.  Research cannot make decisions for policy makers and others concerned with improving the quality of education.  Nor can it by itself bring about change.  However, it can create a better basis for decisions, by providing information and expansion about educational practice and by clarifying and challenging ideas and assumptions.
