Title: Evidence-Based Practices in Schools: Concerns About Fit and Implementation (Newsletter article)
Description: Historically, schools have been confronted with
yet another project, another program, and
another initiative. Many of these aim at
addressing learning, behavior, and emotional
problems and making schools safe and drug free.
Added to the picture in recent years has been the
demand that schools adopt practices that are
evidence-based.* Increasingly, terms such as
science-based or empirically-supported are assigned
to almost any intervention identified as having
research data generated in ways that meet ?scientific
standards? and that demonstrates a level of efficacy
deemed worthy of application.
