"Our society is increasingly interested in improving the educational experience and outcomes of students, and evidence-based decision-making is a feature of that innovation process. Individuals involved in the development and use of evidence in education have come together in this volume, and there is a common hope that it will make a contribution to the ongoing conversation. An effort has been made to broaden the discourse more than is usual in a single book by inviting individuals from groups that do not normally interact very much to contribute. As a result, the topics addressed are wide-ranging. Divergences in interests are sometimes substantive, and this is one of the strengths of the volume. For example, contributors with an economics perspective tend to focus on long-term outcomes but not link them firmly to the details of the education system, whereas academics from education faculties are more likely to focus on shorter run "in-school" or immediate post-school outcomes. Although the essays in this volume focus almost exclusively on the Canadian context, this introduction will first put one aspect of the system into international perspective before it turns to a brief overview of the contributions, with a focus on the interactions, and divergences, of the various perspectives."
