Policy debates about economic growth and national competitiveness, for example, commonly focus on the importance of human capital and a highly educated workforce. Research and Policy in Education argues that education policy is as often driven by political ideologies as by solid research evidence.

It may be wishful thinking to expect a reauthorized Education Sciences Research Act to address all the important insights in Finnigan and Daly’s book.
