My top five press releases from June’s School Improvement Industry Announcements – Research and Evaluation

Every edbizbuzz reader is not an eduwonk. From correspondence, I know that many are working educators, administrators and school board members. Some are parents. Although the internet has given everyone ready access, none have the time to sift through the avalanche of reports and events produced by federal government agencies, policy analysis groups and program evaluation organizations every month. No doubt each item is of importance to someone in the field, but few are important to everyone.

Here’s where edbizbuzz can help.My firm’s monthly web-enabled report School Improvement Industry Announcements – Research and Evaluation monitors over 130 government, for- profit and nonprofit organizations involved in school improvement policy research and program evaluation nationally. Starting today, I’ll be offering my top five announcements from each monthly issue. My criteria for selection will be useful reference data, knowledge of lasting value, and important facts or insights.

Must have data: Institute for Education Science: Condition of Education 2008 (May 29)

The budget is policy: Center on Reinventing Public Education: Allocation Anatomy: How District Policies That Deploy Resources Can Support (or Undermine) District Reform Strategies (May)

What Are Your State Standards Worth? Education Next: New Report Card on State Proficiency Standards under NCLB Reveals Which States Have World-Class Standards and Which Do Not (May 12)

What Pipeline? ChildTrends: One Quarter of Science/Math Students Have “Out-of-Field” Teachers (May 15)

DIY Evaluation is Not Far Off: Empirical Education: Development Grant Awarded to Empirical Education (May 22)
