The Reagan Administration has been much criticized for its selection of new names and faces to review funding proposals submitted to the National Institute of Education (NIE), other units of the Education Department, and such agencies as the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). It is said that the Administration is "politicizing" the peer-review process, that it is choosing evaluators who are not "expert" in the fields covered by the proposals, and that in some cases it is recruiting reviewers who are activists rather than scholars.
FOUNDATION SUPPORT: Coverage of specific topics in Education Week is supported in part by grants from the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the CME Group Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the Noyce Foundation, the Raikes Foundation, the Wallace Foundation, and the Walton Family Foundation. The newspaper retains sole editorial control over the content of the articles that are underwritten by the foundations. Additional grants in support of Editorial Projects in Education’s data journalism and video capacity come from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and the Schott Foundation for Public Education. (Updated 1/1/2017)
