>Subject: Report on Middle School Reform in Long Beach
>X-Listprocessor-Version: 6.0c -- ListProcessor by Anastasios Kotsikonas
>There is now available, without cost, a new report on the progress of
>systemic middle-level reform in the Long Beach Unified School District. The
>printed, 23-page publication was prepared by the Focused Reporting Project,
>an unusual reporting and writing team that combines elements from journalism
>and education research. The project describes itself as follows: "It's not
>our job to make the school district look good or bad. We write about middle
>school change in as clear and straightforward way as possible. Our audience
>is not just educators, but parents, community and business leaders, voters
>and taxpayers--anyone who has a stake in better schools."
>The new report on Long Beach includes the following sections: "Focus on
>District Operations," "Focus on School Capacity," and "Focus on Supporting
>Students." Articles within these sections include: "Support for breakaway
>teachers may be the key to LBUSD reforms"; "District must look to schools for
>more leadership"; "Are teachers prepared to meet higher standards?"; "Little
>evidence yet of professional decisions by teams"; and "Shared Decisionmaking:
>Bridge or barrier to better schools?"
>Printed copies of the report are very limited and we may have to send you a
>Xerox copy. If you would like one copy, please follow these directions: (1)
>Send a self-addressed envelope that measures at least 9" x 12"; (2) Affix to
>the envelope at least $1.05 in postage. This will enable us to return the
>report to you by first class mail; (3) Enclose a note requesting the report.
> Send your self-addressed, stamped envelope and request to: FRP Report,
>Program for Student Achievement, Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, 250 Park
>Avenue, Suite 900, New York, NY 10177-0026. Unfortunately, we **cannot*
>repond to fax or e-mail requests. Please feel free to duplicate and
>disseminate the report.
