The Louisiana Recovery School District: Lessons for the Buckeye State
Smith, N. (2012, January)
Washington, DC: Thomas B. Fordham Institute

In considering new governance strategies for persistently failing schools and districts, “policymakers are wise to look at the experiences of other states. Among the boldest and most interesting of these is Louisiana’s Recovery School District (RSD), which is accomplishing both significant gains in student achievement and consequential impacts on district-level standards and governance….Similar entities are now operating in Michigan and Tennessee.”
