Indian Education Reform


Dr. Shaffer completed a six-month detail assignment at the Office of Management & Budget, part of the Executive Office of the President, through the President's Management Council Interagency Rotation Program. During this assignment, she served as a program examiner for the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Indian Education during a critical time when a new plan for educational reform was being crafted. Dr. Shaffer worked with an inter-agency Indian Education Study Group supporting the reform of the Bureau of Indian Education, including working with study group members on establishing a performance measurement strategy and analyzing agency data to support budgetary decision-making. She also provided support for the President’s Native Youth initiative, providing direct support to OMB senior leadership and the Domestic Policy Council in researching alternatives for an inter-agency place-based initiative that will coordinate educational, mental health and infrastructure services.
