Education Reform
Overview
Situation Analysis
Issues and Challenges
The Nielsen Paper
Reading List
The Issues and Challenges tend to cluster into three broad areas:

Performance Standards and Accountability:
Continue improvement in academic standards
Develop assessment systems that are aligned with standards
Business link hiring practices to student performance
School-to-work programs for non-college bound students

Public Funding of Education:
Privatization
Removing barriers to creation of charter schools
Parental choice of schools their children attend
Focus on public system's effectiveness, making it less attractive to divert funds/students

Management Model:
Adversarial collective bargaining vs. new model that emphasizes common interests of teachers, principals, district officials
Link teacher pay to performance in classroom and market conditions vs. years-tenure, credentials
Transform school boards from education micro managers to policy-setting bodies
Create organizations to help Superintendents and Principals learn to run new schools in a new environment
Upgrade the recruiting, selection, training, and support systems for new teachers
