Improving Public Education through Comprehensive School Reform: An Issue Brief from the International Reading Association.
International Reading Association, Newark, DE.
The Comprehensive School Reform (CSR) program is a new initiative that could affect International Reading Association members in the United States--but will benefit only those who take advantage of it. The purpose of the CSR initiative is to provide financial incentives for schools to develop comprehensive school reforms. Funding is available to state education agencies (SEAs) to provide incentive grants to school districts for schools that elect to pursue CSRs. Each SEA must submit an application for funding, and each school must identify a CSR model or design its own CSR program according to established criteria. The United States Department of Education is reviewing the CSR program to decide how the process should be developed. (RS)
