Crippled Inside?

A lot of talk about the SIG grants and what is or is not happening as a result.  Today, a new Mass Insight takes a look at the School Improvement Grants (SIG) initiative and offers some ideas on what should come next (pdf).

More generally, I wouldn’t characterize this report, the new one on Race to the Top from TNTP or the analysis on stimulus dollars from Bellwether as coming from purists but there is some useful feedback in all of them worth heeding in policy design…
