President Bush intends to nominate two new members
<http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2008/06/20080619-18.html> to the
National Institute for Literacy (NIFL) advisory board. They are Mary E.
Curtis, of Massachusetts, for the remainder of a three-year term expiring
Nov. 25, 2011, and Diane Barone, of Nevada, for the remainder of a
three-year term expiring Jan. 30, 2011. Curtis is the lead author of OVAE¹s
STudent Achievement in Reading (STAR) Tool Kit and spearheads evaluation
activities for the National STAR Training Network. Her work on STAR
<http://www.startoolkit.org/> since 2005 has helped more than 400 teachers,
administrators and professional developers learn to implement evidence-based
reading instructional strategies in adult education classrooms in 12 states.
Curtis is involved in plans to add another 270 adult educators in six more
states this fall. Barone is a professor of literacy studies at the
University of Nevada, Reno, and a member of the board of the International
Reading Association. The board, created by the Adult Education and Family
Literacy Act (AEFLA), provides input to an interagency group comprising the
departments of Education, Labor, and Health and Human Services, which
provides NIFL¹s policy direction and guidance.
-- Does anyone have further information about these two nominees, and/or the
process for bringing people onto the NIFL advisory board?
