Scope and Contents

This series documents Julius Coles's service on the Board of the Academy for Educational Development (AED), which began in August 2010 and continued until July 2012 when the organization and the board were dissolved. The papers detail the actions taken by the board in response to USAID's decision to ban the organization from receiving federal funds as a result of its failure to disclose malfeasance and misuse of funds by its employees working in Pakistan.
