Expanding Best Practices
Many of the practices of high-performing systems are implemented in some U.S. districts and states, but not systematically or at scale. What are some of the obstacles to expanding best practices beyond these pockets of excellence? What capacities do districts or states need to build in order to make this goal a reality?
For this three-page paper, prepare an argument either for or against expanding the systems and practices of high-performing schools across the United States. Be certain to defend your stance. Validate your statements with quotes and theories from education and government leaders.
Support your statements with evidence from the Required Studies and your research. Cite and reference your studies in APA style.
