Publication January 201563 pages

SREB examined the efforts of 14 states to support implementation of new standards. The goal: Document steps states have taken, highlight exemplary efforts,  provide feedback to states and foster cross-state dialogue to inform continuous improvement. 

What successes, challenges and next steps did interviewees articulate?  What recommendations does SREB draw from the study?

Researchers reviewed state policy documents and reports, state department of education websites, and other sources such as U.S. Department of Education reports, and then interviewed leaders from state departments of education, local teachers and leaders, members of state boards of education, union leaders, legislators’ and governors’ staffs, higher education leaders, and representatives of business and community organizations.
