Effective federal, state, and local policy provides the foundation that enables classroom innovation to flourish. Key aspects of effective policy are flexibility, frequent evaluation, and the ability to modify policy as needed to engender true transformation. A systematic approach to policy formulation enables policy makers to establish realistic policies in reasonable time frames. Central to the process is a focus on clear goals and the evaluation elements that allow the process to be checked continually to determine whether the intended audience is truly benefiting.
