This report was completed by a special committee of the Harvard Faculty of Education appointed to consider how the graduate study of education should be viewed in the context of a strong independent university. Its focus is on Harvard but its concerns will be relevant elsewhere.

Included are a history of the Graduate School of Education, a summary of the Faculty’s initial actions, and new doctoral program directions.
