A new report from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education concludes that the national strategy for education and youth development has been too narrowly focused on academic, classroom-based approaches and recommends the development of comprehensive pathways to serve youth in high school and beyond. To read more about the study, check out these stories from USA Today, Education Week, and the Associated Press.

Education Week reporter Sean Cavanagh describes how governors are learning to do more with less in education: “Governors and other officeholders are arguing that their states have no choice but to re-examine assumptions about how schools are using the money they currently receive, given bleak budget conditions that may not improve substantially for at least a few years. Some are urging their states to demand more financial accountability from schools, while others have proposed redirecting at least some of the flow of funding to districts and programs, in the hope of either saving money or improving student performance.”

Ian Quillen, also of Education Week, reports on how the marriage of e-courses and mobile devices is still evolving.
