Analysis of Mayor Adrian Fenty's Plan for the District of Columbia Public Schools
Council of the Great City Schools
This report summarizes Mayor Fenty's proposed legislation to take over the District of Columbia Public Schools, compares it to actions taken or proposed by the school board, and analyzes the potential of the mayor's plan to fix underlying school system problems identified by the Council in two recent reports. The Council has produced this current document to assist the school board, the mayor, the city council, the public, and others concerned with the educational achievement of the city's children. This analysis draws on the reports that the Council conducted over the last three years and on the organization's expertise in big city school districts, and seeks to inform the public and policymakers on whether and how the legislation proposed by Mayor Fenty addresses the issues raised in those reports. (Appended are: (1) Trends in National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Scale Scores among City School Districts Participating in the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA); and (2) Proposed Organizational Structure of Schools Under Mayor's Proposal.)
