NEW FORUM REPORT
From the White House to the governor's office to local school
districts, high school reform is at the center of a hot debate. At
EdSource's 28th annual Forum, speakers focused on the need to
change public high schools, painting a somewhat grim picture of
high schools both in California and the nation. But a number of
speakers offered exciting examples of alternatives to the
traditional high school as well as views on the best ways to
implement change. This report summarizes the speakers'
comments. Download it for free at:
Stay tuned for two upcoming reports:
"How are California's Charter Schools Performing?", due out in
late May, will provide new analyses and explore the reasons why
that is such a hard question to answer. In June, EdSource will
publish more about high schools including new performance
data and a look at Career/Technical Education.
