米国の初等・中等教育(PreK-12)での教育改善の機会:2011年 PreK-12 School Improvement Opportunities 2011
出版日: 2011年05月25日 ページ情報: 英文 79 Pages
概要

米国のオバマ政権は、ARRA(米国再生・再投資法)の一環としてSIG(School Improvement Grants:学校改善助成金)制度を2009年に設立し、これまでに40億米ドルもの連邦予算がつぎ込まれてきました。この政策は、各州で「教育実績の最も低い」学校をリストアップさせ、根本的な改善計画の実行を条件に資金援助を行うというものです。各州から提示されるリストには対象となる初等・中等教育(PreK-12)学校だけでなく、教育改善に協力する州政府機関や大学、NPO、さらには民間の教育業者も含まれています。このような一連の政策が、教育産業の競争を激化させ、各企業に大きな影響を与えています。

当レポートでは、SIGが教育産業(出版・教材・教育サービス企業)にもたらす市場機会やその他の様々な影響について分析し、各学校での事例や将来の展望などを含めて整理し、概略以下の構成でお届けします。

PreK-12 School Improvement Opportunities 2011 is a state-of-play market briefing that examines the unique opportunity offered to publishers and providers of educational materials, tools and services by the expanded federal funding of the U.S. Department of Education' s School Improvement Grants program for lowest-performing schools. In the process, SIG, and other federal programs like Race to the Top, are helping disrupt traditional business models and processes in the educational publishing industry.

Through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the federal stimulus plan, the Obama administration poured about $4 billion in funding into school improvement and redirected the focus to the worst-performing schools.

As a result, most states are compiling lists of approved external providers for schools to work with. While there is great variation in the lists, it creates a competitive landscape and typically reflect a mix of in-state educational agencies, universities, non-profit organizations and commercial technology and educational services and materials vendors as wide-ranging as America' s Choice, Edison Learning, Cambium Learning, Learning Point Associates, Mosaica Education, Success for All Foundation and Wireless Generation.

The demands of the School Improvement Grants opportunity has sparked changing business models and acquisitions, particularly among the largest publishers such as Pearson and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, while McGraw-Hill, Scholastic and Renaissance Learning are among publishers partnering or reorganizing internally to pursue the opportunities.

From SIG specifically, one lesson is that traditional publishers and software providers are facing increasing competition from newly formed companies based on educational management know-how and instructional strategy prowess, as well as from providers of data analysis services that have moved into the education space.

PreK-12 School Improvement Opportunities 2011 looks at where the greatest opportunities are for publishers and providers of instructional materials, tools and services. Opportunities in instructional programs exist particularly under the transformation and turnaround models. Remediation, enrichment, differentiated learning and response to intervention are components, as is integration of technology.

Case studies at schools in Miami, Bridgeport, Conn., Yakima, Wash. and Boston demonstrate how school leaders are prioritizing educational needs and how spending on instructional materials and professional development fits into school improvement plans.

The very persistence of the problem creates an ongoing need. Whether the response in the future is Schools Improvement Grants or some other program, the federal government, states and local school districts will continue to attack the problem.
