State Actions To Restructure Schools: First Steps. Results in Education Series.
David, Jane L.; And Others
The widening mismatch between the skills of the work force and the skill demands of the work place underlie the need for school restructuring. Fourth in a series, this document builds on and extends the issues discussed in the National Governors' Association's (NGA) previous publications and reports on case studies of early restructuring efforts initiated by five states. The report contains four sections. Section 1 provides an introduction, a definition of restructuring, a description of what states are doing, and a brief overview of the NGA's five-state study. Section 2 describes in detail restructuring initiatives in the five states: Maine, Washington, Massachusetts, Arkansas, and North Carolina. Section 3 focuses on how these states stimulated the restructuring efforts. The fourth section discusses school restructuring in the future within the context of expanding the initiatives mentioned in the second section. (JAM)
