Overview
The conventional view of Congress that it is an ineffective lawmaking body plagued by partisan conflict and gridlock. Yet, too often the raw measures of its legislative activity (number of laws passed, days in session, etc.) are inaccurate depictions of substantive lawmaking and governing. This project will help us to understand Congress’s ability to fulfill its legislative responsibilities, by gauging its success in renewing and updating existing programs and laws set to expire on a periodic basis. Prof. Scott Adler and collaborators will identify and track all expiring provisions in legislation enacted by Congress since World War II. The data should provide a more nuanced perspective on Congress’s legislative performance.

Grants to this Grantee
for fostering inclusive math learning for emergent bilinguals through interactive simulations  
University of Colorado Boulder’s PhET Interactive Simulations project creates interactive simulations to increase the effectiveness of teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics worldwide. With this grant, PhET will develop and pilot an interactive simulation to support K-1 mathematics learners in developing deep numbers sense. The project will focus on supporting emergent bilinguals’ participation and sensemaking in mathematics and will inform the Open Education strategy’s goal to ensure that OER is designed to be responsive for every learner. (Substrategy: Content, Tools, and Services)
for support of a research hub that focuses on youth organizing  
The National Education Policy Center, a nonprofit education research center housed at the University of Colorado Boulder, supports the Research Hub for Youth Organizing and Education Policy. In order to advance education justice, the hub conducts research and shares results and analyses with youth-organizing groups and coalitions. The goal of these efforts is to uplift and centralize the voices of marginalized youth to sustain a movement dedicated to improving education systems. (Strategy: Tie-Off)
