LEARN Leads Sign-On Letter Opposing Cuts to Research Funding

Over the summer, LEARN, along with the American Educational Research Association, led the effort to draft a letter to Congress and gather signatures in opposition to drastic cuts in research funding contained in the FY2016 House of Representatives Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies funding legislation.

When it was sent to congressional leaders, on September 10, 2015, the letter had nearly 2,000 signatures from organizations and researchers across the country.

Education Week, a leading source of education news and analysis, reported on the letter under the headline “Education Researchers to Lawmakers: Don’t Cut Funding for Key Programs.”
