Document Number: 8623Restructuring 'Restructuring': Improving Interventions for Low-Performing Schools and Districts - Education Sector research finds that school districts and states often avoid making the hard choices that might lead to real reform. This report documents how few states and districts use the tools provided to them by NCLB. Instead of closing schools or replacing personnel, districts and states most often choose other, less aggressive actions. They hire consultants, redesign the curriculum or create smaller learning communities. This report lays out a series of specific policy changes that can be made at the local, state, and federal levels. (Robert Manwaring, Education Sector, April 2010)...
