Center for Education Policy Analysis
Drawing from the fields of education policy, school redesign, organizational change, leadership development, and program evaluation, the New England Secondary School Consortium's "High Leverage Policy Framework" is a detailed exploration of education policy from rationale to development to implementation. By taking into account the larger social and political "ecosystem" in which policy is formed, written, and implemented, this tool provides policy makers and educators with a step-by-step framework they can use to identify and develop effective, high-impact policies in their states, districts, and schools. Using a common definition of high-leverage policy--i.e., policies that not only increase educational equity, aspirations, achievement, and attainment for all students, but that also generate positive change throughout the educational system--the "Framework" is a first step toward a more holistic view of education policy, and more thoughtful and sustainable guidelines for learning in the 21st century. The "Framework" draws upon research on policy formulation, implementation, and efficacy, and it is intended to serve as a guide for policy makers and educational leaders working to enact transformative change in public schools.
