Agency Information Collection Activities; Comment Request; What Works Clearinghouse Formative Feedback

Abstract: The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) within the U.S. Department of Education is proposing data collection activity as part of the What Works Clearinghouse Feedback Task. The task and its associated efforts are being undertaken by the U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences (IES), and are being conducted by Mathematica Policy Research. The intended purpose of the Department of Education (ED), Institute of Education Sciences (IES) WWC feedback task is to collect feedback from users on the relevance, timeliness, quality, and ease of use of the products associated with the What Works Clearinghouse Web site. The results of the data collection will be used to inform improvements in ED program products and services for its customers.

What is the What Works Clearinghouse and what type of education policy do they promote?

We already know what works in education and we insist on denying children in urban and rural public schools the benefit of the same educational experience that children in private schools receive.

When every child in America is provided with an excellent, child-centered, developmentally appropriate, experiential education that is founded in the Arts and is concentrated on discovering, developing, and directing their gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, concerned, actively engaged citizens, we will no longer need to collect data on a failing system to determine how to sustain it.
