At the core of a world-class system of delivery of educational services, there must be a comprehensive process for continual transmission of the best that knowledge synthesis and new experimentation can offer for utilization procedures and practices. This idea was expressed by Representative Major R. Owens, committee chairman, in his opening remarks at a congressional hearing on the reauthorization of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI). Statements from the following persons representing OERI and various facets of the educational community including research and development, testing, and educational technology, indicate the shape that various interests would like the reauthorizing legislation to take: (1) Diane Ravitch; (2) Thomas Schultz; (3) Edward P. Keller; (4) Wornie L. Reed; (5) Michael Webb; (6) Michael B. Eisenberg; (7) Linda Morra; (8) Stanley D. Zenor; (9) Arthur E. Wise; (10) Robert L. Linn; (11) Preston Kronkosky; and (12) Ann Lieberman. Prepared statements follow from each of these individuals, accompanied by letters and supplemental materials. The various panelists expressed concerns about the purposes and fundings of the OERI, as well as its funding. Information dissemination is a major concern. (SLD)
