D.C. Mayor Fenty's School Governance Reform Plan

Testimony Before the District of Columbia City Council
January 30, 2007

Abstract

Governance reform is "no magic bullet" for boosting student achievement, Jane Hannaway told the District of Columbia City Council, because of the effects of other direct, indirect, and interactive factors. The director of the Urban Institute's Education Policy Center pointed out, however, that mayoral control of the school system may establish conditions that make it more likely that effective education policies and practices will be put in place.
