Catalyst magazine (which sponsors this blog) has a new
article up about the difficult search for folks willing to take on the
challenge of turning around low-performing schools (Anyone want a turnaround?).
The teacher preparation outfit (and Obama fave) AUSL has taken on
several schools, and the district has its own in-house turnaround shop
run by a Broad alum named Alan Anderson that is running a few. But a
proposed effort called ChicagoRISE hasn't yet taken off nearly as
quickly as hoped, despite support from NSVF and others.
