The Reauthorization of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Education Reform of the Commitee on Education and the Workforce. House of Representatives, One Hundred Seventh Congress, First Session (February 28, 2002).
This hearing was held to discuss the reauthorization of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI) of the U.S. Department of Education, focusing on H.R. 4875, which was introduced in 2000 to reform OERI and institutionalize new standards of quality. H.R. 4875, approved by the House Subcommittee on Education Reform, serves as the basis for H.R. 3801, the Education Sciences Reform Act. This bill would replace OERI with a new Academy of Education Sciences that would provide the infrastructure for the undertaking of coordinated and high quality education research, statistics gathering, program evaluation, and dissemination. Testimony was given by several experts. Following the opening statements of Representative Michael Castle and Dale E. Kildee, statements were given by: (1) Grover "Russ" Whitehurst, Assistant Secretary, OERI; (2) Jim Horne, Secretary, Florida Board of Education on behalf of the Education Leaders Council; (3) Douglas Christensen, Commissioner, Nebraska Department of Education and on behalf of the Council of Chief State School Officers; (4) Lisa Towne, Senior Program Office and Study Director, Center for Education, National Research Council; and (5) Anne Bryant, Executive Director, National School Boards Association. Eleven appendixes contain the written statements of these witnesses and supplemental information for the record. (SLD)
