Tweeting the National Board of Ed. Sciences Meeting

By Sarah D. Sparks — June 29, 2011 1 min read

I’m Tweeting live from the National Board of Education Sciences meeting this morning, and there’s already some interesting news coming out.

I’ll be blogging it later today, but you can get the updates in real time on my Twitter feed: @sarahdsparks.

So far:

SarahDSparks: NCES’ Buckley: new FERPA rules out in next few months, end of year tops. Clarity on #privacy, student education research.

SarahDSparks: IES’ John Easton in final negotiations for new Special Ed. research commissioner. Long overdue for leadership.

SarahDSparks: IES down $50 million in #budget, cuts to #specialed research, labs, state data systems may be most problematic.

SarahDSparks: NCES’ Buckley: “We have never studied the full trajectory of middle school.” He wants to align longitudinal studies to fill the gap.

A version of this news article first appeared in the Inside School Research blog.
