A new educational research organization is forming as a counterpart to AERA (the American Educational Research Association). I get the impression that the impetus for this is that too much of the current research on education has the flaw that it doesn’t really care about cause and effect.

Since cause-and-effect are critical—because it’s the only way to really find out what the critical factors are, I’m hoping for great things from this organization.

It’s name is: Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness
