Rethinking High School Turnarounds
Doyle, Betsy; Iyengar, Nithin
Bridgespan Group
In June 2012, Green Dot Public Schools and The Bridgespan Group convened a small group of education leaders focused on high school turnaround and transformation. This report explores some of what was learned about problems of practice and potential solutions--all toward the ultimate goal of college and career readiness for every student. The content of this article previously appeared as a series of blog entries on Mass Insight Education's blog, "In the Zone." The promising practices presented in this report suggest that delivering a brighter future for students at chronically low-performing high schools is possible. But it means rethinking the approach to high school turnaround in several ways.
