E. B. DuBois, Carter Woodson, and so many others. Can we do any less? S. government has essentially defined scientifically based research by law (The No Child Left Behind Act, 2001) as the use of randomized controlled trials to provide solid evidence of what works in education to policy makers, teachers, parents, researchers, and other consumers of research. , The Institute of Education Sciences [IES]) as well as other funding agencies. Scientifically based research, so defined, has been placed at center stage since the creation in 2000 of the Campbell Collaborative, an international ‘‘non-profit organization that aims to help people make well-informed decisions about the effects of interventions in the social, behavioral, and educational arenas’’ with the aim ‘‘to prepare, maintain and disseminate systematic reviews of studies of interventions’’ using randomized controlled trials (The Campbell Collaboration, 2000).
