A plan for LR schools

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2009 at 9:36 AM

The broad-based Strategic Planning Commission for the Little Rock School District will unveil its thinking at an all-day meeting Monday at the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service building on University Avenue.

This link gives you details, agenda and a broad outline of what respected consultants propose to produce "eye popping" improvement in performance of LRSD students.

Better teacher recruitment, smaller class sizes K-3, tutors for students in need, more testing and performance-based pay ideas are among the worthy ideas that carry costs. I don't see a specific mention of the obvious need to streamline an overinflated administration to produce money for these child-friendly ideas. I'm guessing it's a given. (There is talk about the need for strong leadership in key positions to accomplish the objectives. Questions remains about whether that is in place.)

Funny. I don't think I've received an official District news release announcing this meeting. The public is welcome.
