The New England Educational Research Organization (NEERO) is a regional affiliate of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) with approximately 200 members from New England and New York-area colleges and universities, public and private schools, state and local educational agencies, health and social service agencies, and private education firms.
NEERO’s objectives are to improve educational programs and supervisory practices; to provide a stimulating, supportive and friendly forum for scholarly presentations; to identify and disseminate successful educational practices; and to foster skill development in research and evaluation methodologies. We pursue these objectives primarily through our annual research conference.
The 2014 Conference will be held from April 30 – May 2, 2014 at the Mt. Snow Grand Summit Hotel and Conference Center in Vermont. The Keynote speaker will be Dr. Becky Wai-Ling Packard
