    inquiry On 22 September 2006 the U S Department of Education ED published a document entitled The Reading First Program s Grant Application Process Final Inspection Report 3 3 Mb PDF in which the Office of the Inspector General reports the results of an audit of certain aspects of the Reading First program Reading First is a central piece of the No Child Left Behind NCLB legislation According to the report the OIG audit of the grant award process indicates that FINDING 1A The Department Did Not Select the Expert Review Panel in Compliance With the Requirements of NCLB FINDING 1B While Not Required to Screen for Conflicts of Interest the Screening Process the Department Created Was Not Effective FINDING 2A The Department Did Not Follow Its Own Guidance For the Peer Review Process FINDING 2B The Department Awarded Grants to States Without Documentation That the Subpanels Approved All Criteria FINDING 3 The Department Included Requirements in the Criteria Used by the Expert Review Panels That Were Not Specifically Addressed in NCLB FINDING 4 In Implementing the Reading First Program Department Officials Obscured the Statutory Requirements of the ESEA Acted in Contravention of the GAO Standards for Internal Control in the Federal Government and Took Actions That Call Into Question Whether They Violated the Prohibitions Included in the DEOA My observations numbered to correspond with the OIG findings FINDING 1A Having been chair of one of the subpanels I was a bit surprised by the concern about the review panels it s a pretty august group a list of the panelists follows One OIG concern is that the subpanels each composed of five members did not include someone nominated by each of the legally stipulated entities the Secretary of Education the National Institute for Literacy the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development As the report notes ED created a 12 member panel that did fit the criteria as I recall this was composed of the subpanel chairs FINDING 1B The conflict reported is that OIG s review of 25 panel members vitae reveals that 6 panel members had significant professional connections undefined to Direct Instruction I don t know whether my vita was reviewed it s available here for those who want to examine it Fortunately about 72 of 72 panelist appear to have had significant connections to evidence based practice I do not recall reviewing any application that expressly recommended what I suspect the OIG report identified as a DI program TFINDING 2A he critique of the process is that ED Reading First employees sent summaries of the panel reviews to the applicants rather than sending them the longer report of the panel chair As a panel chair I know my co panelists and I labored over our individual reports and that I put a lot of work into summarizing everyone s concerns when I prepared our summaries of our meetings I m sorry the applicants didn t get to see them FINDING 2B Here the problem OIG reports is that some applications were funded even though the subpanel reviewing them had not determined that the proposal met standards on all the criteria As I recall this could not have been the case for any of the proposals reviewed by our subpanel as we reviewed them all until all criteria met standards FINDING 3 Begin correction based on comment The finding refers to the fact that some of the language used to describe the minimal standards to which panels held applications went beyond the criteria specified in the law I do not remember whether any of the proposals our panel reviewed would have been funded after fewer reviews had the standards reflected the law rather than the revisions included in the review criteria FINDING 4 End correction This is a multi part finding a OIG s concern here is that the development of documents providing guidance to applicants and reviewers were more stringent than the actual law as I recall reviewers packets include both the criteria and the law itself b Reading First folks acted to publish a report for which NIFL had contracted It s the same report that earlier in the OIG s report the Inspector General identified as a product a representative of Nevada applicant said would have been helpful in developing Nevada s application c Reading First folks indirectly encouraged consultants to one of the applicants to include Reading Mastery on it s list of approved core reading programs d The Reading First administrators recommended to another ED employee that the employee discourage local education agencies from using reading materials that would not pass muster as scientifically based and discouraged others themselves Apparently this was not an appropriate exercise of oversight or monitoring of state and local education agencies compliance with the Reading First process For those who are interested in the composition of the panel a list of the members names and affiliations follows Maria Elena Arguelles Ph D Research Assistant Professor University of Miami Janet Sloand Armstrong Ed D Managing Director Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network Rebecca Barr Ph D Professor of Education National Louis University Donald Bear Ph D Professor of Curriculum Instruction College of Education Director E L Cord Foundation Center for Learning
