2010 Spring Forum - Washington, D.C.

School Turnaround Strategies Session - April 8, 2010
NCSL Contacts: Lamar Bailey, Robert Strange, David Shreve

The Administration recently announced its plan for turning around struggling schools.  The plan offers four levels of intervention from replacing at least half of a school's staff, to closing and dispersing students to other public schools and charter schools.  At this session, a panel will address questions of what works, where school turnarounds have been successful, what alternatives should be considered and what role state legislators can play in this effort.
