Report Highlights PASR's Important Role

A recent report from Grantmakers for Education suggests that additional efforts are needed to ensure that new policies leading to better student outcomes are put into practice.  Implementing Education Policy:  Getting From What Now? to What Works argues that grantmakers should fund agencies, organizations, and programs that are responsible for policy implementation; provide technical assistance; fund watchdog groups to monitor the progress of reform efforts; and support communications activities that target stakeholders affected by policy changes.
