Document Number: 10767SEA of the Future: Leveraging Performance Management to Support School Improvement - At a crossroads, State Education Agencies (SEAs) are having to reinvent themselves. Federal reform efforts threw light on the nation's lowest performing schools and districts which, in turn, engaged state legislatures, governors, advocacy groups, and citizens who want to see school improvement.

It ends with implications for governors and legislators. (Betheny Gross, Ashley Jochim, Paul Hill, Sam Redding and Patrick Murphy, BSCP, May 2013)...
