“How Federal Policy Can Encourage Authentic Community Engagement”

How Federal Policy Can Encourage Authentic Community Engagement is from the Annenberg Institute for School Reform.

It’s a short article that suggests a new draft family engagement framework developed by Karen Mapp for the U.S. Department of Education should be integrated in the “turnaround” school strategies (see The Best Resources For Learning About The Four School Improvement Grant Models) presently pushed by the Department.

I’m personally a bit hesitant on that — it seems to me a little like putting lipstick on a pig — which is the same way I felt about the Department adding community engagement to one of the recent rounds of Race To The Top funding. But, nevertheless, the framework looks interesting.
