Friends of IES Urge Highest Possible Topline Funding for IES in FY24

The Friends of Institute of Education Sciences, a coalition of more than 40 higher education organizations and universities including AAU, sent a letter to Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young outlining two recommendations to support IES in FY24.

The letter recommends the “highest possible increase over the FY 2023 funding level for the top line of IES” and sufficient funding to “address staffing needs to support IES research, statistics, assessment, evaluation, and dissemination activities.” These recommendations, the letter notes, “would support the continued work of IES to invest in innovative research, training programs that seek to broaden participation in education research, and the capacity to produce high-quality and trustworthy data.”
