Center for Reform of School Systems
Dramatically improving urban schools is a national priority. It will not happen, cannot happen, unless the trustees who govern urban schools have the knowledge, political skills, and courage to become effective policy leaders. Training urban trustees for reform leadership is a high-leverage opportunity for improving the nation’s major urban school districts.
Good governance does not guarantee effective school districts. But without good governance, effective school districts are the exception not the rule.
The mission of the Center for Reform of School Systems is to teach school board members and superintendents how to transform their districts for high student achievement.
