The Challenges of Building Local Collaboratives for Sustaining Educational Improvement


"Can collaboratives achieve improved student-performance outcomes? In Challenges and Potential of a Collaborative Approach to Education Reform , RAND researchers evaluated whether the 1998 Ford Foundation Collaborating for Education Reform Initiative (CERI) was meeting its goals of helping community-based organizations and central district offices in eight urban centers build collaborative partnerships to promote and sustain educational improvement in the public schools. Findings are presented along five dimensions, and differences in progress are traced to factors important in creating collaboratives themselves."
