Summary
"Much of the failure of recent policy efforts to improve education can be attributed to inconsistency, lack of unified purpose, and an emphasis on low-level skills. This book offers the first in-depth look at systemic school reform, and shows educators at the district, state, and federal levels how to coordinate the various elements of policy infrastructure around a new set of ambitious, common goals for what students should know and be able to do. Sponsored by the Consortium for Policy Research in Education."--Jacket
