Educational Development in the Twenty-First Century: Refl ections on the Integration of Research, Policy, and Practice

  • Brian J. Caldwell

Phillip Hughes is without peer in his capacity to integrate research, policy, and practice. This chapter celebrates this pre-eminence by reflecting on issues in three domains in which he has been engaged over the decades, taking up some findings on research and drawing implications for policy and practice. While there are illustrations from his homeland, a broad international perspective is adopted, in keeping with the size of the arena on which Hughes has played.
