"Symposium on Effective Schools" 1990

Scope and Content note

In 1990 a congressional staff member, working for the Democratic majority, undertook to design a symposium on effective schools to demonstrate the important contribution of federal funding in stimulating school improvement. A planning committee of education groups was formed, including AERA, papers were written by scholars and practitioners, a conference was held, and a Committee Report was issued.

Education First Alliance 1994-1996

Scope and Content note

Beginning after the congressional elections in 1994, the Republicans began a concerted effort to eliminate the U.S. Department of Education, which had been established by President Carter. AERA joined forces with a coalition of education organizations to save the department. A comprehensive response was developed which included telemarketing strategies as well as more conventional advocacy tactics. Ultimately, the Republican leadership dropped its plan for a frontal assault on the agency.

Scope and Content note

In the early days of the National Board, AERA was called on for advice about the need for additional research to provide a foundation for the proposed activities, as well as for guidance and support with regard to securing federal funding for this purpose. AERA ultimately supported a sole-source contract and federal funding to the National Board for conducting necessary research and instrument development
 

"Research Contributions to Educational Improvement" report 1983
