New Successes for Success for All?

Readers interested in either the i3 grant program or in literacy instruction should check out Nick Anderson's Washington Post article from the weekend on Success for All, as well as this excellent and interesting follow-up blog post that reminds me why I so like Jay Mathews. I think that the awardin...

Stimulating Analysis

A new report out today from Bellwether Education Partners looks at the impact of stimulus funds on education reform.

How Did Parents as Teachers Win an i3 Grant?

Race to the Top scoring issues have come in for a lot of attention and griping over the past few weeks.

RTT and the Problem with Trying to Do Too Many Things at Once

49 i3 Winners Announced

Kudos to EdWeek's Michele McNeil for getting the scoop on 49 Investing in Innovation (i3) grant winners a day before the Department of Education intended to announce them.

Competitive Grants are Nothing New

The topic of National Journal's Education Expert blog this week is "Do Competitive Grants Hurt Equal Opportunity?" A lot of ink and hot air has been spilled lately around formula vs. competitive grants--largely in relation to Race to the Top. And I find the conversation exceedingly odd. I mean, it...

Don't Lose Sight of the Big Picture: Harlem Children's Zone Research, Promise Neighborhoods, and the Broader Education Debate

Kudos to Russ Whitehurst and Michelle Croft for taking seriously some of Geoffrey Canada's valid complaints about their study on Harlem Children's Zone's effectiveness compared to other NYC charters, and for issuing a new analysis that includes data on HCZ's second Promise Academy Charter School, as...

Phase 2 RTT Finalists: Guess It Really Wasn't About Buy-In After All

When Secretary of Education Arne Duncan named the two Race to the Top Phase 1 winners earlier this year, his announcement speech emphasized the extent to which winners Delaware and Tennessee had received near universal buy-in from districts and teachers unions for their state Race to the Top plans. ...
