For graduate students, experienced teachers, and administrators, Pine (education, Boston College) argues that through the inclusion of students and parents in action research, teachers can create knowledge democratically. He discusses the importance of including the students voices and collaborating with them in conducting inquiry. He describes the nature, history, and development of action research; forms of research; validity; how to use research to create this knowledge democracy; professional development schools as places where it can occur; and aspects in conducting it.
