Reflecting on the lessons of many reform efforts, research from the Frontline Institute suggests that a committed focus on human capital management may be key to producing real improvement both in the short term and over time. "When it comes to the human capital reforms of the last decades, efforts were inspired by research: namely, that teachers and leaders have the highest in-school impact on student outcomes. So, why walk away from efforts to improve the way we recruit, onboard, evaluate, and support educators?" writes Dr. McQueen in her Foreword. "Rather than shifting our focus elsewhere, we would be well served to apply lessons from recent efforts at human capital reform to improving our systems and remaining committed to supporting educators as we should."
