Vigorous leadership by mayors and city council members can yield big dividends through improvements in the quality of public education, according to a new study released by the National League of Cities (NLC) Institute for Youth, Education, and Families. “Stronger Schools, Stronger Cities” profiles municipal leadership efforts in six cities that participated in a 30-month technical assistance project funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The report highlights strategies used by mayors and council members to overcome challenges — such as changes in leadership and government budget deficits — to successfully support progress in raising student achievement and improving public schools. For more information on the Institute?s technical assistance project, please contact Audrey Hutchinson at 202-626-3053 or
