Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho has been reappointed by U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos to serve as a member of the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) from October 1, 2019, to September 30, 2023. Carvalho has served on the NAGB since 2015. He is the only Board member to have been reappointed.
“The theory of action behind testing kids cannot be simply to report data; the end goal must be to improve teaching and learning,” said Carvalho. “I am deeply proud to continue being a part of this great work, and I thank Secretary DeVos for the reappointment.”
NAGB was created by Congress in 1988 as an independent, nonpartisan board to set policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation’s Report Card. NAEP is the largest nationally representative, continuing evaluation of the condition of education in the United States. It has served as a national yardstick of student achievement since 1969. NAEP informs the public about what American students know and can do in various subject areas and compares achievement among states, large urban districts, and various student groups.
