APA joined the Friends of IES (Institute of Education Sciences) in sending a letter to Congress supporting the Biden administration’s FY 2022 budget request of $737.47 million for the IES (PDF, 103KB).

The administration’s proposed funding level would “restore lost purchasing power over the past decade for IES to leverage education research, statistics, and evidence-based resources to address long-standing gaps in educational access and outcomes.” It would also increase the research and statistical infrastructure needed to support learning recovery, understand, and address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic across all levels of education and ensure the continuation of research and data collection in the field.

The Friends of IES is a coalition of 32 organizations committed to supporting the essential role of the institute in education research.
