graders The set theory of mathe matics to 4th and 5th grades Anthropological c o ncepts to junior high students College1 e v e 1 courses on physical theory and literature to high school students These experimental projects got started says the govern ments director of educational research because educators are taking another look at many of cherished cliches about how how much how early how quickly and how well children can learn Francis A J lanni of the U S Office of Education said adults too long have underesti mated the learning abilities of children He quoted psycholo gist Jerome Bruner Any sub ject can be taught effectively to any child at any age in some form that is honest and useful lanni says much remains to be done in the field of educa tional research Frankly he told a council of state commissioners and su perintendents of schools un less there is some dramatic change we shall continue to de velop programs based upon fashion and fad before they are tested and evaluated Too many educational re search programs lanni said have been unimaginative and almost wholly restricted doc toral dissertations on small narrowly defined projects And lanni said educators have shown too much resist ance to change In medicine for example the average lag between research and its appli cation is estimated at two years In education the process often takes 30 years or more lanni said the US Office of Education has established four reseaxch r centers or proving grounds of education and we intend them to operate in much the same way as the agricul t h r a 1 experimental stations which havfi led so successfully to the diffusion of soundly tested research The four centers are at Har vard and the Universities of Pittsburgh Oregon and Wiscon sin Iowa workers to get time off after all
