Education: Teachers and Pupils Back in the Central Focus as the Result of an Evidence-Based Study by John C. Hattie

Visible Learning by John C. Hattie is shaking up the education world.

Donald C. Orlich in his review at Education News sums it up nicely:
"[T]wo conclusions may be inferred: (1) Teacher quality is a key link to student achievement and (2) Most current educational reform efforts have simply been “fads.”

This book is a MUST reading for all involved in teacher education programs, those who determine educational policies and standards, and school evaluators."
We have been arguing for years for an evidence-based approach to education, learning, teaching, and the arts and sciences in general, and John Hattie's work is an exclamation point in this direction.

Hat tip to CZ/CK and a German-language Zeit Online article titled Ich bin superwichtig! by Martin Spiewak about the John Hattie evidence-based education study.
