Challenges in Systemic Education Reform

Reform is generating a great deal of excitement and energy is associated with many positive classroom changes.  But policymakers and educators are also facing a number of challenges in designing and implementing the new policies.  This policy brief examines these challenges as well as strategies states are using to address them.  It draws from CPRE's studies of reform in 19 states and from discussions with staff of policymaker associations involved in providing assistance to states.
