The National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board: Its Role, Development, and Prospects.
National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board (ED/OERI), Washington, DC.
The National Educational Research Policy and Priorities Board (NERPPB) was established under the Improving America's Schools Act of 1994 to work with the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) to forge a national consensus with respect to a long-term agenda for educational research, development, dissemination, and the activities of OERI. The NERPPB has 15 members appointed by the Secretary of Education for 6-year terms. One-third of the members are researchers in education, one-third are school-based professional educators, and the remainder are individuals knowledgeable about education in the United States. The NERPPB, which is not independent of OERI, has responsibilities in the areas of setting priorities, approving standards, conducting review functions, providing liaison with the field and the public, and improving the system. Some of the major accomplishments of the NERPPB are reviewed in the areas of program priorities, peer review and standards, and research, development, and dissemination. These accomplishments have resulted in a variety of reports on standards and particular aspects of educational research. The NERPPB has performed as required as it has developed its operating style and worked on the approval of standards and collaboration and approval of research priority plans. (SLD)
