Summary

This issue summarizes study findings on how education agencies in California, Nevada, and Utah are responding to federal cutbacks, consolidation, and deregulation. Using the term "school improvement" to refer to a wide variety of activities and services, negative factors identified by the researchers include: elimination of many federally funded school improvement projects; cutbacks in other education programs that reduce school improvement capacity; long-term shortfalls in support for research and development affecting the size and quality of the knowledge base; and shortfalls in state and local funding that reduce the capacity of education agencies to support school improvement activities. Positive factors include: improvements in the quality and efficiency of many remaining programs; continued support for some truly useful projects; initiation of some new projects; establishment of cooperative efforts to share resources and secure public, political, and financial support; and reorientation of education agency planning from narrow and short-term to multiprogram, multiagency, long-term perspectives.
