Making Politics Work For School Improvement

Grant Year: 2020

Paul Hill and Ashley Jochim will research and write a book exploring how policymakers can make school reforms designed to enhance achievement among less advantaged students resilient against political pressures. They will examine how reforms implemented in a variety of large urban districts were challenged and often undermined and assess strategies adopted by some leaders to harness political forces to sustain the reforms.
