Educational research—indeed all research—is essentially about universals, that is, what is true generally of schools, teachers, students, learning, and so forth. Practice, on the other hand, is concrete, immediate, particular, and local. And, most important, the situations in which teaching and learning practice occur are locally understood. What works, therefore, is necessarily a local matter.
