Best Research to What Works Luncheon Series: Transcripts

This series of luncheon forums was designed to highlight best research on key educational issues, then to link these findings to the practical steps that schools can take to improve student achievement. Held at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, on a periodic basis from 2002 to 2007, these events brought together a select group of researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to discuss crucial issues about which research and practice appear to diverge.
