Jochim, Ashley; Yatsko, Sarah; Opalka, Alice – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2018
Many who attempt district-charter collaboration point to "politics" as a constraint that affects their work, but little is understood about why some collaborations enjoy broad support while others become mired in conflict. Drawing upon CRPE's multiyear study of district-charter collaborations in dozens of cities as well as research on…

Hill, Paul; Jochim, Ashley – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
State chiefs have new responsibilities under the Every Student Succeeds Act, but their formal powers are still limited. Despite these constraints, the Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE) analysis finds that chiefs can make a difference by wielding their powers strategically, to build coalitions and persuade others. While turnover in the…

Posamentier, Jordan; Lake, Robin; Hill, Paul – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
State policy plays a critical role in determining whether and how well local education improvement strategies can be implemented.

Jochim, Ashley; Opalka, Alice – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
In 2014, the Springfield Public School district in Massachusetts had tried just about every strategy in the turnaround playbook to improve a set of struggling middle schools, but these efforts failed to generate the desired improvement. In 2015, drawing inspiration from national efforts to infuse schools with enhanced autonomy and accountability,…

Lake, Robin; Yatsko, Sarah; Gill, Sean; Opalka, Alice – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
In cities where public charter schools serve a large share of students, the costs of ongoing sector divisions and hostility across district and charter lines fall squarely on students and families. Exercising choice and accessing good schools in "high-choice cities" can be difficult for many families, especially some of the most…

Gross, Bethany; Denice, Patrick – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
Transportation remains a vexing concern in cities that offer students school choice. Time and again, research has shown that families typically want high-performing schools or schools with unique academic programs. But those schools tend to be concentrated in a city's affluent neighborhoods, often long distances from low-income households and…

Lake, Robin; Jochim, Ashley – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
The Center on Reinventing Public Education (CRPE) designed the portfolio model based on the idea that we should move away from a "school system" to, instead, "a system of schools." In essence: school boards should focus on overseeing a "portfolio" of distinctive schools rather than directly running a set of…

Toner, Mark – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
Across the country, many large school districts have seen flat or declining enrollments in recent years, including in places where there's been concurrent growth in charter schools. The result has been a growing perception that charter expansion is coming at the expense of the health of traditional school districts--a perception that, even if…

Gill, Sean; Campbell, Christine – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
In at least ten cities across the country, there are schools that operate under some sort of partnership school model: a "third way" governance strategy that breaks through district-charter divides that could help improve struggling schools or increase the number of quality school options in a neighborhood. Like charter schools,…

Jochim, Ashley; Gross, Betheny; McCann, Colleen – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2017
Washington, D.C., has looked to school choice as one way to improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged students. School choice attempts to "level the playing field" between students of different backgrounds by making it possible for all families to have access to a city's high-quality public schools--whether students live near these…

Medler, Alex – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2016
With the federal government increasingly ceding authority to states in a revamped Every Student Succeeds Act, many states are looking for new ways to positively influence local work and take on greater leadership. States can--and should--play a more active role in fostering collaboration efforts if they are serious about ensuring quality public…

Gill, Sean; Yatsko, Sarah; Lake, Robin – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2016
Since the first charter school law was passed in 1991, the relationship between charter schools and districts has been rife with conflict. To no one's surprise, districts have fiercely resisted competition from public schools of choice, especially when that competition grows beyond just a small number of schools and poses a real threat to the…
