Summary: This article argues that intervention researchers should solicit the input of practitioners in designing and operationalizing interventions through a co-constructive process, clearly spell out intervention protocol in language that can be understood and followed by practitioners, view interventions within the complex realities of schools, and ensure that outcomes of interventions are both statistically and socially significant.
