    I’m not sure why low-quality psychological studies are published as much as they are. It seems to be the way things are done, but other scientific fields seem to hold much higher standards. It’s as if no one realizes the entire field depends on good research. Education has a similar history of operating from a poor research basis. The outcome is a field based largely on preconceived notions and guesswork–and why should the public pay for that?
