Unchartered Territory

“This report describes Georgia’s school restructuring efforts under the NCLB, including… interviews with state officials…and case studies of five schools in three school districts….Georgia districts rejected the federal option to reopen restructuring schools as charter schools, and only one school was turned over to an outside management agency …. Restructuring and outside intervention have done little to improve case-study schools with inadequate leadership.”
