PER--is this really a sustainable (even desirable) sub-area in graduate
physics programs. Is PHYSICS educational research unique enough from
SCIENCE educational research and from EDUCATION research to be sustained
a separate entity. When does specialization become too specialized.
there be programs in Physics Educational Research, Chemistry Educational
Research, Biology Education Research, Psychology Educational Research,
History Educational Research, etc.? I don't know..but it seems too
extensive, too specialized at first glance when you list out all
and ask if each is unique enough to support separate programs. PER may
led the way, but perhaps it is time to fold PER into something more
general--Science Educational Research for example--or even fold it back
general Educational Research. Again, just a question.
