Dr. Ruth Neild, Deputy Director for Policy and Research, the Institute of Education Sciences, will speak about federal education research policy issues. She has addressed some of the familiar criticisms about the federal research programs in a recent article titled: “Federally-supported education research doesn’t need a do-over.” Her views on the role of the federal government in creation and utilization of education research will no doubt be sought in the implementation of research provisions of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and in the forthcoming reauthorization of IES (Strengthening Education Through Research Act).

Dr. Ruth Neild, Deputy Director for Policy and Research, the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) at the U.S. Department of Education has also been delegated the duties of the IES Director, ably filling the vacancy arising with the departure of John Easton.  She is the first person to head the agency that has prior experience as an IES Commissioner of one of the four research centers.   As director of the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance (NCEE), Ruth was responsible for the federal Regional Educational Laboratories, the What Works Clearinghouse, and the Education Resources Information Center (ERIC).

In addition to her research experience within the Department of Education, Ruth was a research scientist at the Johns Hopkins Center for Social Organization of Schools.  She earned her doctorate in sociology at the University of Pennsylvania and earned her bachelor’s degree in history and sociology from Bryn Mawr College.
