Reading Roundup: Standout High Schools and More

By Catherine Gewertz — August 17, 2010 1 min read

A few things to read on a slow August morning:

• A new report from the Achievement Gap Initiative at Harvard. It profiles the leadership of 15 public high schools, tracking the things they did to make their schools standouts.

• A recent survey by Achieve that finds broad support for the college and career-ready agenda.

Announcement of a plan by the Institute of Education Sciences to study ways to link NAEP results to international assessments. (NAGB, which oversees NAEP, mentioned a little something about this in the spring, as well.)
