Besides creating an outlet or vehicle for the promotion and the dissemination of theory and practice in the professional development school field, the book series project will focus on topics at the forefront of current discussion and dialogue among experts. The manuscripts will be carefully and systematically selected to provide the expression of an array of voices, especially those that speak from insightful, first-hand experience. Included are the voices of the researchers who strive to design and implement research that seeks to inform practice. The book series will underscore the depth and substance of research quantitative and qualitative designs, and their applications in a variety of contexts.
