Education research in policy and practice focuses on the implications of educational policies for practice. Informed by history, philosophy, sociology, and anthropology, education policy research focuses on the practical effects of educational policies and practices. This field also uses research methods from a variety of other disciplines to make policy recommendations.
Here are some of the most common methods:

Philosophy of science
Philosophy of education is a branch of applied and practical philosophy concerned with issues surrounding the nature of learning, educational theory, and educational practice. It involves issues from various areas of philosophy, including ethics and social/political philosophy. In addition to philosophical questions, education is also concerned with the traditional divide between theory and practice. The following chapters explore some key issues in the philosophy of education. The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of the current state of the field.
Philosophers of science often consider questions about the nature of human beings, social institutions, and schooling. Students are challenged to ask whether educational research is a science, what forms of research are appropriate, and how educational research affects practice. These students’ essays should inform their future careers. They should also consider whether philosophical principles are helpful or harmful to educational research. Despite the various issues that may arise, the importance of philosophical analysis cannot be overemphasized.
The book explores the connection between the research process and educational policy, exposing the often opaque and ambiguous nature of research. It aims to characterize these contexts and to identify elements of continuity and discontinuity between them. In doing so, it offers new and more productive ways of looking at research. In doing so, the book offers a welcome perspective on educational research methodology. Its authors discuss the role of evaluators and researchers in educational policy.
One of the major concerns of education policy is the question of what constitutes good education. There are various theories underlying education policy, ranging from sociology to philosophy. These theories have implications that affect both higher education and K-12 education, and affect communities, schools, and families throughout the country. In addition, the study of educational policy and practice is informed by various forms of critical analysis. A critical approach is vital in understanding the effects of various educational policies and programs on students, teachers, and schools.
Published by the Asia-Pacific Educational Research Association, the journal presents the findings of research that has direct relevance to education policy and practice in Asia-Pacific countries. Research findings are presented in the form of analyses of global forces, regional trends, and national education reforms, as well as studies of important issues facing teachers and learners in this region. These research findings can help inform educational policy and practice, and aid in the formulation of national education policies and programs.
As a peer-reviewed journal, Educational Policy is dedicated to the practical consequences of education policy, shedding light on important debates in the field. The journal also brings together the best of educational research with the world of practice, presenting an in-depth portfolio of journals. Key books and new articles are featured in the journal’s portfolio. A recent special issue of the journal, Education Policy, explores the interplay between education research and policy-making.
