Can someone tell me about the main responsibilities of the center of education reform?

I am doing a research on education in the United States and how it has changed during the last few years. I would like to know about the main responsibilities of the center of education reform and about the latest Barack Obama education reform. In addition, I would like to know about the main science education reform in the US and about the general American school reform. I would really appreciate it if someone who works in an education-related field can help me. Thank you!

I am sure that I can help you with all the information you are looking for and also provide you with references from which you can get more information about education in the United States. Talking about the center for education reform, its mission is clear, and it is to guarantee expanding all possible education opportunities that may lead to the improvement of economic outcomes for all American citizens, particularly for the youth, ensuring that they get the necessary conditions for effective innovation, flexibility and freedom. They are planning to do that by starting to apply a new opportunity agenda to education in the US. The center was established in 1993, and its main aim back then was to bridge the gap between policies and effective practice of educational strategies. At the end of my post, you will find a link to the website of the center of education reform from which you can get all the information you may need about it for your research.

If you want to know about the latest Barack Obama education reform, it was signed in October 2015, and it included many decisions that were made by members of the Congress of both parties regarding the improvement of the overall educational process in the US after they have come together to review the national education law. One of the main achievements of this reform was the reduction of the federal government’s control over the public schools of the nation by transferring the decision-making authority back to local governments when it comes to school performance and accountability. Since the 1990s, many people have admonished the members of the education system to reform science education. Most of the recommendations about educational programs were about emphasizing issues like updated technologic and scientific knowledge, the application of modern learning and teaching strategies, improved ways to achieve equity, and a better preparation of employees for the workplace. The second link at the end of my post has more information about this reform. The reforms of the American school system have been really great during the last years, as they have led to the current educational system that we have today in the US. You can compare many reforms of the last 100-200 years and you will see the many differences they have achieved over the decades.

I personally do not know much about education improving strategies, but I want to comment on the Barack Obama education reform. I remember the time when he signed the latest education reform as I was very glad they could finally come to a decision like this to improve the overall education system in the US. It is a very huge country with many different people of different nationalities and mindsets, and that is why I am sure it was a very wise decision to reduce the federal government’s authority over the public school system. As to the science education reform, I believe that there should be regular updates when it comes to school subjects as science is improving and discoveries are made every day. I want to wish you good luck with your research, and I am very glad that there are many people who are constantly working on the improvement of our educational system.
