2014 National Board for Education Sciences Annual Report, July 2013 through June 2014
National Board for Education Sciences
The Education Sciences Reform Act of 2002 (P.L. 107-279) created the National Board for Education Sciences (NBES) to serve as an advisory board to the Director of the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) within the U.S. Department of Education. Among the duties listed in the Education Sciences Reform Act, the Board is required to submit the current report to the Director of IES, the Secretary of Education, and the appropriate congressional committees not later than July 1 of each year. This report constitutes the Board's 2014 assessment of IES's effectiveness in carrying out its priorities and mission, based on the Board's meetings and deliberations from July 2013 through June 2014. On September 10, 2013, then NBES Board Chair, Dr. Bridget Terry Long, Academic Dean and Xander Professor of Education and Economics at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, provided testimony to the Committee on Education and the Workforce in the U.S. House of Representatives (provided in the third appendix). As part of a hearing entitled Education Research: Exploring Opportunities to Strengthen the Institute of Education Sciences, Dr. Long summarized on behalf of the Board their support for the important advances IES has made in carrying out its priorities and mission of providing rigorous and relevant evidence about education and making that information broadly available to critical stakeholders. Additionally, Dr. Long's testimony highlighted key recommendations that the board had for reauthorization of the Education Sciences Reform Act (ESRA, P.L. 107-279). The following are appended: (1) Agenda of the January 31, 2014 NBES Meeting; (2) Agenda of the January 31, 2014 NBES Meeting; and (3) Testimony of Dr. Bridget Terry Long to U.S. House of Representatives.
