Organization:Education Commission of the States
Short Description:12 for 2012 is an ECS “read of the field,” built on scrutiny of new reports and research, and analysis of emerging drivers of change
Annotation:12 for 2012 is an ECS “read of the field,” built on scrutiny of new reports and research, and analysis of emerging drivers of change. The 12 policy areas do not represent an exhaustive list of the critical issues for the coming year, nor is this report intended to dictate your education policy priorities for 2012. Rather, 12 for 2012 is intended to stimulate thinking around how best to craft the “2.0” of powerful policy across the states.
