  1. Here’s a suggestion: next time you publish a collection of policy ideas, include a chapter that emphasizes the value of gathering practices that are proven by high quality research and using them far more widely. The IES Practice Guides were started up in the Bush Administration. There needs to be much more such work. And, more important, these practices that work need to be promoted in accountability policy, school improvement efforts, best uses of funds, and teacher preparation programs.
