LEARN Holds Fall Advocacy Day – October 8

On October 8, representatives from more than 10 LEARN member institutions came to Washington, DC for the Coalition’s annual Fall Advocacy Day.

In the morning, attendees had the opportunity to hear from Kathleen Styles, the Chief Privacy Officer at the US Department of Education, and talk about the potential impact of proposed updates to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

In the afternoon, attendees participated in a series of meetings on Capitol Hill to talk with congressional staff and other key officials about issues important to the research community, including funding for the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) and ongoing efforts to reauthorize the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Special thanks to the University of California, Washington Center for hosting us and to all those who attended.
