Why Isn’t researchED More Popular in the US…Yet?

“ ‘I didn’t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin.’  – Neo”  – Tom Bennett

ResearchED founder, Tom Bennett, spoke these words at the conclusion of the latest researchED conference in the United States (October 7 in Brooklyn, NYC).  ResearchED has experienced nice growth in the UK since its inception in 2012 and has since grown to include conferences in Australia, Sweden, Canada, the Netherlands, etc.  Growth in the United States has lagged  behind a bit, though.  Below, I would like to propose a few reasons why I believe this is so.  To be completely honest, I am a big supporter of the goals of researchED and believe a more evidence-based approach to professional development and classroom strategies is very important for the success of students in classrooms across the globe.
