Confirming What?

Posted By: Dick Schutz on April 11, 2008
 
Let's see. Perry was in the 1960s, Abecedarian in the 1970s, and the CPC program in the 1980s. "Today" is 20 years later than the most recent CPC data.
What is the status of these "programs" today? What more do we know about how to reliably produce aspired educational consequences? What do these data tell us that was not accepted as "common sense" 40 years ago? At this rate it will take until the 12th of never (and that's a long, long time) to be able to field "early childhood interventions" that have a sound scientific/technical foundation. One doesn't need a LISREL analysis to reach this conclusion. And if one were to replicate "confirmatory program evaluation" ad nauseum one wouldn't reach any other conclusion.

Where's William of Occam when we really need him?
