The results of this dissertation will help provide state legislators and educational leaders with information to make plans for a more effective instructional program in Ohio.Anyone wanna bet that the folks listed -- or anyone for that matter -- are using his dissertation for anything other than a doorstop?
This is my favorite, Wade concludes, "in other words, incentives do have a positive effect on student achievement." But, didn't ol' Wade fight for the big bucks up front. Is he stating that incentives only motivate students? Or, is he admitting that he is only about the money -- the tax dollars?
note: The dissertation is a torture to read. But you might as well read it since it's costing us $28,950. Within the education field, muddled self-importance and nonsense is all you are ever going to get -- at any price.
