Duncan and Easton Slated to Appear at IES Research Conference

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and John Q. Easton, the Ed Department's brand-new research chief, are scheduled to say a few words this morning at the Institute of Education Science's fourth annual research conference here in Washington.

The conference, begun by Grover "Russ" Whitehurst, the department's last IES head, provides an opportunity for the institute's grantees to meet, discuss common problems, and share their work. Princeton University economist Cecelia Rouse, a member of the President's Council of Economic Advisers, is also on the agenda.

This may be the first major public appearance for Easton, who's been on the job exactly one week, and may provide an opportunity for him and Duncan to drop a few details about what's in store for IES under the Obama administration.

Yours truly will be there, too. Come back to this space tomorrow for a report on the goings-on.
