Lovaglia's Law - Bad news for Evidence-Based Decisionmaking

Bob Sutton quotes Michael Lovaglia as follows:
Lovaglia’s Law: The more important the outcome of a decision, the more people will resist using evidence to make it.
As someone who works to help bring better data to bear on low- and high-stakes decision making in educational systems, this is troubling (but not that surprising) as a working hypothesis.
