Event Details

Research Presentation by

Josh Goodman, Harvard Kennedy School
Beth Scheuler, Harvard Graduate School of Education

Response and Discussion from


Jeffrey C. Riley, Superintendent/Receiver, Lawrence Public Schools
Paul Reville, Francis Keppel Professor of Practice of Educational Policy and Administration, Harvard University Graduate School of Education


In 2011, Massachusetts took over the Lawrence Public Schools. The state instituted a variety of reforms, including Acceleration Academies, reassignment of teachers, and new district leadership. As the state examines the possibility of school and district turnarounds, what lessons can be learned from the Lawrence experience. Have the reforms worked? Which reforms appear to be more effective?

Cosponsored by the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, the Taubman Center for State and Local Government, and the Collins Center for Public Management at UMass Boston.
