Education Sciences Reform Act

from Council for Exceptional Children

CEC is preparing for the reauthorization of the Education Sciences Reform Act, legislation which was signed into law in 2002 and established the Institute for Education Sciences, the research arm of the U.S. Department of Education. In 2004, the reauthorization of IDEA shifted special education research from the Office of Special Education Programs within the Department to IES, in an effort to house all education research under one entity. With this first reauthorization of ESRA, the special education community has an opportunity to evaluate how this change is working and present recommendations for changes.

To that end, CEC's Policy Team has been working closely with members of the DR Board to create draft ESRA reauthorization recommendations for review by CEC stakeholders which will be then be submitted for a Representative Assembly SharePoint discussion and then submitted to the CEC Board for approval. Click here to download the draft recommendations followed by guiding discussion questions and background information we hope you will share with your networks in an effort to gain broad-based feedback. Please provide feedback to CEC's Policy Team by Nov. 16 by email. more
