Three Hoover Fellows on NAEP, A Nation at Risk, and the Future of Education Reform

Washington, DC 20005

On April 10, the U.S. Department of Education will release the latest results of the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), which will tell us how fourth- and eighth-grade students are faring nationally, in every state, and in most big cities in math and reading. That week also marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of A Nation at Risk.

To celebrate these two momentous occasions, join the Hoover Institution, the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, and Education Next on April 25 from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. for a look at ed reform’s progress since the 1980s and an examination of what the latest NAEP scores mean for America’s future economic growth and social vibrancy.

You can also follow the conversation on Twitter with @HooverInst, @educationgadfly, @EducationNext, and #FutureofEdReform.
