Reforming Urban Schools
Joel Klein offered his ideas on how to reform urban schools. His goal was to create a system of great schools rather than a great school system. One method to achieve this goal was to divide schools into peer groups that were judged against their cohorts rather than against the entire school system. Other solutions included offering $15,000 to teachers who commit to teach three years, and accountability and compensation programs. close
