Curious about what, exactly, the feds have in mind when they urge schools to be innovative with the federal stimulus money? Education Week has a good story summing up some of the preferred reforms. This quote from federal education czar Arne Duncan sums it up nicely:

Referring to the application for those competitive grants, Mr. Duncan said: “The first question, … I promise you, will be what did you do with the stabilization money to drive reform and improve achievement? If there’s (sic) isn’t a good answer to that, they might as well just tear up the form.”

If you missed it, check out my earlier story on the push for creativity with stimulus bucks. How schools balance the push for innovation with the need to survive financially will be one of the things to watch in school districts this year.
