With chapters written by leading researchers and practitioners actively engaged in the work, this Edited Volume examines the role of the state education agency in school turnaround efforts. An emphasis is placed on practical application of research and best practice related to the State Education Agency’s (SEA’s) critical leadership role in driving and supporting successful school turnaround efforts.
The Edited Volume is organized around the Center on School Turnaround’s four objectives, with sections devoted to each:
- Create a Pro-Turnaround Statutory and Regulatory Environment
- Administer and Manage Turnaround Efforts Effectively
- Provide Targeted and Timely Technical Assistance to Local Educational Agencies and Schools
- Advocate and Lead to Build Support for Local Turnaround Efforts
Chapters include: a) brief literature review, b) examples from SEAs (and/or concrete examples of proposed SEA practices), and c) action principles for the SEA.
