Situation of educational research in Catalonia

Jaume Sarramona i López


Commissioned by the Commissionat per a Universitats i Recerca and the Department of Education of the Autonomous Government of Catalonia, the present study has been published as a White Paper on Educational Research in Catalonia between 1986 and 1995. The goal has been to establish a database of the projects identified, as well as to carry out analyses to allow for a diagnosis of the educational research situation in Catalonia.
After careful comparison with international trends in the field and the consideration of the constraints derived from the educational system itself, some proposals have been made to encourage certain lines of future research that are considered necessary to meet presently and future educational needs, therefore the present study will interest not only educational researchers but policy analysts and educational policy makers as well.
