While thinking about the editor’s column for this issue, a colleague gave me an LSHSS article published in 1982, ‘Research and Evaluation in the public Schools” by Mary D. Laney. After reading the article, I decided that it was appropriate to use as an introduction for this clinical forum on “Developing Evidence-Based Practices and Research Collaborations in School Settings,” which is guest-edited by Dr. Kenn Apel.
In 1982. Dr. Laney called for the research and evaluation of educational practices “in the public schools as the most effective means of settling disputes regarding educational practice, promoting improvements in the delivery of services, and establishing a cumulative tradition in which improvements can be introduced without the faddish discard of old wisdom in favor of inferior novelties” {p, 53). In her call for empirical research, she addressed three areas:
  1. the lack of research conducted by speech-language pathologists and audiologists employed in the public schools,

  2. the advantages of conducting research in the public school setting, and

  3. the need for speech, language, and hearing professionals to become involved in research and evaluation.
