Education is a field of study in which people have opinions – usually strong ones. To improve our understanding of the field of education and its practices, research is often needed. Research, of course, serves many purposes. According to Educational Research: A Guide To the Process by Norman E. Wallen, Jack R. Fraenkel (2011), a major purpose of research is to provide evidence to help identify which opinions have more validity than others.
