National Board for Education Sciences 2008 Annual Report, August 2007 through July 2008. NBES 2008-6009
National Board for Education Sciences
The annual report reviews research priorities, major Institute of Education Sciences (IES) updates, and recent resolutions. National Board for Education Sciences (NBES) members conclude that evidence-based research provides essential information to policymakers, educators, and parents for improving education and meeting the academic needs of students. As IES continues to make progress in transforming education into an evidence-based endeavor, the Board continues to urge Congress to support the role of IES as the primary agency for federal education research. The Board notes with regret the language in the 2008 House Appropriations bill, H.R. 2764, that halts the use of funds to conduct the evaluation of the Upward Bound Program until September 30, 2008, urging the importance of including all federally funded programs in scientific evaluation. Two appendixes are included: (1) Members of the National Board for Education Sciences; and (2) NBES Resolutions since its Inception.
