The Sit-Down Dinner: Formalizing Restructuring under the No Child Left Behind Act in Michigan
Scott, Caitlin
Center on Education Policy
This report describes Michigan's school restructuring efforts under the No Child Left Behind Act, and includes findings from case studies of nine schools in four school districts: Detroit Public Schools, Flint Community Schools, Harrison Community Schools, and Willow Run Community Schools. Key findings from the report include: (1) more Michigan schools are in restructuring due to a greater number of high schools entering restructuring; (2) the state offers additional assistance and monitoring to restructuring schools through intermediate school districts and other regional entities; (3) turnaround specialists remain the most popular restructuring option; and (4) federal Title I funds increased, but state financial difficulties hinder restructuring. (Contains 4 footnotes and 10 tables.) [This report was written with Maureen Kelleher.]
