Document Number: 8440Stuck Schools: A Framework for Identifying Schools Where Students Need Change--Now! - This report shows that schools often lumped together as "low performing" are not all alike. Data from reading and mathematics assessments for elementary and middle schools in 10 states show some low-performing schools remain "stuck" year after year. Yet others that started as low performers are among the fastest improvers in their states. Amid conflicting claims about school turnarounds and growing federal investment in struggling schools, this report sheds light on gains, or their absence, in low-performing schools.
