US Dept of Ed Releases Report on Place-based Strategy
An exciting new report from the US Department of Education demonstrates just how much the administration is internalizing the PolicyLink adage: Place matters.
This report, which mentions our Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink partner, the Center for the Study of Social Policy, emphasizes the importance of place-based efforts to combat poverty and improve neighborhoods. And it highlights the signature place-based program: Promise Neighborhoods!
Read the post from Larkin Tackett, who was until recently the Director of Place-based Initiatives at the Department of Education, for more on Promise Neighborhoods and the new district focus on Race to the Top. And download the full report! It’s well worth a read.
