Recent NAEP results show the largest drop in reading scores since 1990 and first-ever decline in math scores. This decrease is the result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also of a system that was already not working for many students. To change course, we must find transformative new approaches to K-12 education and invest in education R&D.
The Alliance for Learning Innovation (ALI) seeks to bring together education stakeholders - including non-profit organizations, philanthropy, and practitioners - to advocate for research-based innovations in education that leverage federal investments in education and workforce development. Our bipartisan alliance of partners has developed a comprehensive multi-part agenda including the goal of quadrupling federal investment in education R&D within the next five years.
Please note that a working session will be held following the main program from 11am-12pm ET for those who are able to stay. Participants will have the opportunity to share ideas, examples, and recommendations to inform ALI’s ongoing work on specific topics including (1) building more and stronger state and local R&D infrastructure, (2) better supporting and expanding the role of HBCUs & MSIs in education R&D, (3) increasing diversity and inclusiveness in education R&D, (4) communicating compellingly to Ed R&D Stakeholders and (5) leveraging ED R&D to improve American competitiveness.
