PSC in Education Week

Education Week reporter Stephen Sawchuk just posted a great article about the Priority Schools Campaign on his Teacher Beat blog. Sawchuk learned more about PSC while covering NEA’s Representative Assembly in New Orleans earlier this month. He reports that the ¬†campaign “will focus on four core tenets for improving low-performing schools: increasing staff effectiveness; developing family and school partnerships; increasing district and local-union collaboration; and leveraging community assets.¬†Those tenets aren’t groundbreaking in and of themselves, the directors noted. What’s new is that they are being put together in a comprehensive reform approach.”
