Education Department proposes big changes to school improvement grant program
from Education Week
Floundering schools that receive federal turnaround dollars under the controversial School Improvement Grant program would get some new options for using the money under draft guidance slated to be published in the federal register. But they might not be getting quite as much new flexibility as some folks in Congress had hoped. At Congress' insistence, the proposal would permit states to move beyond the Obama administration's prescriptions for school improvement, by partnering with an organization that has a strong track record of fixing low-performing schools, or by cooking up their own turnaround options.
