New ECS report on governor efforts to consolidate agencies

Back from a long March break--from blogging, that is, not from working during a very hectic legislative session!

Today ECS released a new report by this blogger on 2 recent state trends documented here-- governors' interest in consolidating state agencies overseeing various education "silos", and interest in serving a more hands-on role in education governance.

The report also cites a 1993 report that confirms that the more things change, the more they stay the same. The authors of the report point out that there is no "best" state education governance structure, but that different structures (chief appointed or elected, chief a politician or professional educator) may serve differing but equally valid state education goals.
