Raising Student Achievement in the Newark Public Schools: Report of the Strategic Support Team of the Council of the Great City Schools
Council of the Great City Schools
The Newark Public Schools (NPS) has been at the center of reform and improvement efforts in New Jersey for the better part of 12 years. The results of these efforts are both significant and frustrating. The school district has made substantial progress over the last few years; but it also has a long way to go before it attains the level of excellence that everyone in the city wants. This report discusses both sides of the story and makes recommendations for the superintendent and the board to consider in their efforts at accelerating student achievement and addressing the school system's overall reforms. (Contains 14 tables and 4 graphs. Appended are: (1) School-by-School Progress; (2) Individuals Interviewed; (3) Documents Reviewed; (4) Strategic Support Team Members; and (5) About the Council.)
