In response to long-standing problems with student achievement and the mgmt. of the District of Columbia (D.C.) public school system, the D.C. Council approved the Public Education Reform Amendment Act of 2007. This act made major changes to the governance of the D.C. public school system, giving the Mayor authority over public schools. This report focuses on the primary reform approaches the District has taken. It examines the steps the District took to: (1) address student academic achievement; (2) strengthen the quality of teachers and principals; (3) develop long-term plans and involve stakeholders; and (4) improve accountability and performance of the D.C. public schools  and the state superintendent's central offices.
