“Turnaround Case Studies” is an analysis of strategies to turn around low-performing schools undertaken by six large urban districts and four education management organizations. These case studies are based on a convening organized by ERS where leaders from school districts, education management organizations (EMOs) and education reform groups discussed “sustaining turnaround at scale.” While districts employ various approaches, they all recognize turnaround is not something schools can do on their own–it requires supports and interventions at the district level. Further, investing to turn around the lowest-performing schools is an opportunity to implement systematic changes that impact all schools.
Also, watch our Turnaround in Action video to see how two schools in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg district in North Carolina are approaching turnaround.
