Title:Incentivizing school turnaround: A proposal for reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
Organization:Center for American Progress
Short Description:Federal policy can play an instrumental role in rectifying the systemic failures that allow schools to flounder. The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, or ESEA, is a ripe opportunity to revise the law’s main program that supports school improvement—the School Improvement Grant fund.
Annotation:Federal policy can play an instrumental role in rectifying the systemic failures that allow schools to flounder. The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, or ESEA, is a ripe opportunity to revise the law’s main program that supports school improvement—the School Improvement Grant fund. This publication makes four recommendations: target dollars to high-need schools and districts ready to reform so that limited federal dollars make the greatest impact, use in-depth data to identify the interventions that districts and schools should implement to achieve maximum results, build the capacity of states to support school-level reform, and construct sensible evaluation, reporting, and accountability policies that support substantial school turnaround.
