National Board for Education Sciences. 2007 Annual Report. Washington, DC: Institute for Education Sciences.
Abstract by ERIC
The annual report reviews research priorities, major Institute of Education Sciences (IES) updates, and recent resolutions. National Board for Education Sciences (NBES) members conclude that the Institute has made important initial progress in transforming education into an evidence-based field in which decision-makers routinely seek out the best available research and data before adopting programs or practices that will affect significant numbers of students. Appropriate support from Congress and the American public for evidence-based education can help ensure improvements in academic achievement for all students.
