School Improvement. The Progress of Education Reform, 2007. Volume 8, Number 5
Christie, Kathy
Education Commission of the States (NJ3)
The goal of state intervention in a school or district designated as low-performing is not to punish. It is to help figure out how to improve student learning. The challenge, particularly for a chief state school officer or state board of education, is how best to leverage assistance to schools that have varying degrees of need. Most state legislatures have provided the state board the authority to act. How to proceed with limited funding and staffing is the truly difficult question. This "Progress of Reform" examines what is being learned from research and looks at the subsequent implications for state policy.
