With respect to education, research-based practices are not only encouraged but required. The only real drawback that I have seen is that some teachers feel they are unable to truly encourage critical thinking and creativity through various components of their lesson plans. I see the accomplished teacher integrating 21st century skills and various techniques to allow for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning into research-based "best practices." In reading practice, the data analysis of student progress in reading comprehension before and after the adoption of strictly research-based practices in literacy education highly correlates with an increase in student achievement.
