Making Schools Work for Children in Poverty. A New Framework Prepared by the Commission on Chapter 1. Summary.
Commission on Chapter 1, Baltimore, MD.
This document summarizes the following eight-component framework of the Commission on Chapter 1 for restructuring the Chapter 1 program: (1) have states set clear, high standards for all students; (2) devise new systems for schools to assess progress toward standards; (3) inform parents about how well their children are progressing toward standards and how they can help; (4) invest heavily in teachers, principals, and other adults in schools so that all students meet standards; (5) match funding to need and assure equity; (6) replace accounting for dollars with accountability for results; (7) integrate health and social service support in schools and school districts for Chapter 1 families; and (8) have states reward schools that progress and change those that do not progress. Part 1 discusses issues and rationale for the recommendations concerning the role of Chapter 1, based on the eight framework components. Part 2 summarizes the proposed Chapter 1 framework based on the eight components, in terms of the following parameters: congressional findings and mission; standards; eligibility and fiscal requirements of local and state education agencies; help and capacity-building; parent empowerment; health and social services; assessment; enforcement (benefits and sanctions); and research, development, evaluation, and dissemination.
