Beth Schueler, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, joins the podcast to share her research on Massachusetts' state-led turnaround efforts in Lawrence, MA.

Beth recounts a variety of tactics that were taken to turn around Lawrence School District. I found the Acceleration Academies to be an interesting practice that shows a lot of promise. What programs have other districts tried that produced promising results?
