2012 Year in Review

2012 was a very productive year at CRPE. Below is a recap of some of our more notable publications, and our webinars can be found here.

New Book

Strife and Progress: Portfolio Strategies For Managing Urban Schools (December 2012, Brookings Press) explains the underlying idea of the portfolio strategy. Based on findings from studies of portfolio school districts, the book shows how mayors and other city leaders have introduced the strategy, compares different cities’ implementation, tells about the civic coalitions that come together to support it, and analyzes the intense and colorful conflicts it can set off.
