Public Education and 'Education Research'...An Oxymoron?

More on the continuing saga of public education.   I have long said and written that the Education Profession is the only body of people working with human beings that is allowed to do raw research on human subjects...with terrible consequences during the last thirty years.  Now comes statistical research proof of that observation (Teaching Isn't Guided By Research, by Paul Clopton and Bill Evers, The Day, Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2004, Commentary, pA7).  "For example, a 1998 report to the California State Board of Education examined 8,727 published studies of mathematics education and found that only 110 met minimal validity criteria."  How is all this allowed to go on?  Choice, anyone?
