Implementation of the Educational Research, Development, Dissemination, and Improvement Act. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Select Education and Civil Rights of the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session (September 15, 1994).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Subcommittee on Select Education and Civil Rights.
The House Subcommittee met to consider the progress that had been made toward the implementation of the restructuring of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) and the fulfillment of its original mission, the equalization of educational opportunities for disadvantaged children. A report on implementation efforts was presented by Sharon P. Robinson, Assistant Secretary of OERI. The passage of the Education Research, Development, Dissemination, and Improvement Act, Title IX of the Goals 2000 Educate America Act, reaffirms the Federal government's commitment to reform through research rather than ideology. Progress in making OERI a consumer-driven organization is detailed, with systemic change efforts listed chronologically. Among the most important of the challenges facing OERI is the construction of five new institutes for research and dissemination among which are the Office of Reform Assistance and Dissemination, and The National Library of Education. The remarks of Sharon Robinson were followed by discussion and the supporting statements by Edmund W. Gordon, James McPartland, and Beverly J. Walker. (SLD)
