Emergency Hearing on the Office of Educational Research and Improvement. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Select Education of the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, One Hundred Second Congress, First Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This hearing before the Subcommittee on Select Education covers the role of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) in educational improvement and change in the United States. The "Emergency" referred to is the departure of Christopher Cross as the head of OERI. The Honorable Major R. Owens, chairman of the subcommittee, expresses concern that the setting of national education research and dissemination policy is too important to allow partisan politics to interfere with the conduct of independent, objective research. The statement of Bruno Manno, Acting Assistant Secretary of OERI, presents the plans for fiscal year 1991 and 1992 activities to be carried out by OERI in conjunction with President Bush's Education Strategy, "America 2000." Manno notes that America 2000 is not a federal program, but rather a national program supported by federal aid. A discussion between Owens and Manno about the various programs to be supported by OERI and proposed uses of discretionary funds is reported in detail. Exchanges between Manno and Representative Ballenger of North Carolina and Representative Payne of New Jersy are also reported. (DB)
