(DC) Bush-Obama School Reform: Lessons Learned
January 16 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm EST
The 21st century has been a remarkable time in school reform. States and districts pursued aggressive testing and accountability policies. Choice-based reforms moved to the heart of the education discourse. The federal government heavily promoted policies around teacher quality, standards, and school turnarounds. The Institute of Education Sciences launched a new chapter in federally supported education research.
What lessons might we draw from the past two decades? What do the George W. Bush and Barack Obama years teach us about K–12 reform strategies and Washington’s efforts to support them?
Join AEI for a research conference exploring these questions. The conference will feature three panels on the Bush and Obama years, a panel with policymakers who served in the Bush and Obama administrations, and a keynote address by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
