A recent report published by the Future of Children, a collaboration of the Brookings Institution and Princeton University, recommended the expansion of intensive school discipline practices to drive academic results. An academic review of the report reveals that the report lacks substance, perpetuates antiquated methods, and does not advance our knowledge. The final report from a four-year evaluation of 2010 Teacher Incentive Fund grant recipients was released late in 2017. An academic review of the report released today finds that the report lacks utility for those seeking to learn from the implementation of PFP. Think Twice is one of the nation’s first efforts to serve as a watchdog to review think tank research on public education issues and policies, ensuring that published work meets the quality and standards of university scholarship. The goal of the Think Twice project is to provide the public, policy makers and the press with timely academically sound reviews of selected think tank publications. The Think Twice project is funded by the Great Lakes Center for Education Research and Practice.

The Center funds policy briefs and reports on important education issues. Policy briefs and reports are written by recognized academic experts in each topic and include a summary of existing research available as well as policy recommendations. Measures of SES have been linked to student achievement on high-stakes standardized tests.

The memo describes how the voucher program alters the relative share of public education spending borne by the state and by local districts and estimates the differential impact of the program on Wisconsin school districts. The authors find that systematic violence and disparate school discipline policies hinder equitable, just, and safe schooling. Community schools represent a partnership and school improvement strategy to integrate resources provided by community agencies and local government for improved student learning, stronger families, and healthier communities.
