Turnaround’s Inclusion in NCLB Discussions

The Aspen Institute’s Commission on No Child Left Behind (NCLB) held a public hearing entitled, “Losing Patience with Chronically Low-Performing Schools: How to Improve School Improvement” on September 2, 2009. Education leaders and policy experts from around the country provided testimony on the success and failure of past intervention efforts, potential innovations, and possible strategies that would help NCLB become more effective at turning around chronically low-performing schools.
