WERA Book Series: Education Science, Evidence, and the Public Good

This book series takes an analytic perspective on the theoretical underpinnings and practical examples of use of scientific evidence from education research to inform educational policy and practice in an international context. It examines a wide range of topics, including assessment and evaluation, educational administration and school governance, teaching and teacher education, education and workforce transitions, the structure of the curriculum, and policy. It ties in with current debates about the purpose and form of education in an era of post-truth, rapid technological change, globalization, demographic and political shifts, and growing economic inequities. With the contributions from national and international education research associations, organizations, and institutions, the series aims to ask, “What have we learned from the use of science as evidence in educational policy, research and practice that can support democratic, humanistic, and morally responsible development for individuals and societies in different regional and international contexts?” Thus, the main focus of the series is to explore the ways in which the use of scientific evidence in education has informed and transformed the relationships between research, policy, and practice for the public good in the regional and international levels.

Each book in the series demonstrates how the discourses and practices of scientific inquiry and evidence in education have evolved by providing empirical case examples and best practices of evidence use.
