Wanted: Stronger Leadership

“A high-powered group of advocacy organizations hopes to see more of the $2.5 billion currently spent by the Education Department to improve K-12 teaching reserved for a competition instead of doled out by formula.”

That’s Ed Week on us and nearly 50 other education organizations that urged Congress yesterday to set aside 25% of Title 2 funds for a competitive program to boost school and teacher leadership.  Letter here.  Strong leadership is central to our interconnected national school turnaround work and state-level math and science initiative – both aimed at producing the next generation of graduates ready to thrive in the 21st century.
