Teacher Research to Change Policy: An Illustration


by J. Myron Atkin 1994

A group of seven mentor teachers embarked in 1988 on such an enterprise. I was one of two people from a university who assisted them. This chapter is anchored in that particular effort. The study in which the teachers engaged is used here as a vehicle for highlighting questions that seem to be associated with teachers engaging in research that has a policy focus. The study and the circumstances surrounding it are also used to illustrate how research of this type by teachers is different from (and usefully supplements) the kinds of studies that engage more conventionally oriented educational researchers when they try to illuminate and affect policy.
