Whether striving to protect citizens from financial risks, climate change, inadequate health care, or the uncertainties of the emerging “sharing” economy, regulators must routinely make difficult judgment calls in an effort to meet the conflicting demands that society places on them. Operating within a political climate of competing demands, regulators need a lodestar to help them define and evaluate success. Achieving Regulatory Excellence provides that direction by offering new insights from law, public administration, political science, sociology, and policy sciences on what regulators need to do to improve their performance. Achieving Regulatory Excellence offers guidance from leading international experts about how regulators can set appropriate priorities and make sound, evidence-based decisions through processes that are transparent and participatory. With increasing demands for smarter but leaner government, the need for sound regulatory capacity—for regulatory excellence—has never been stronger. In addition to chapters by editor Cary Coglianese, and a foreword by Jim Ellis, president and chief executive officer of the Alberta Energy Regulator, contributors include Robert Baldwin (London School of Economics and Political Science), John Braithwaite (Australian National University), Angus Corbett (University of Pennsylvania), Daniel Esty (Yale University), Adam Finkel (University of Pennsylvania and University of Michigan), Ted Gayer (Brookings Institution), John Graham (Indiana University), Neil Gunningham (Australian National University), Kathryn Harrison (University of British Columbia), Bridget Hutter (London School of Economics and Political Science), Howard Kunreuther (Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania), David Levi-Faur (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Shelley H.

This report serves as a resource on student achievement initiatives and offers a perspective or framework through which to view them. It is divided into five sections. Section 1 briefly explores the history of the current student-achievement movement and the issues surrounding it. Section 2 highlights the findings of the National School Boards Association's (NSBA) Student Achievement Survey. The survey was sent to a stratified random sample of 2,000 urban, suburban, and rural districts in 1997. The superintendent and the school board president each received a copy of the survey. A total of 955 superintendents (49 percent of those who received the survey) responded. Section 3 provides close-ups of eight districts and their student-achievement efforts. Section 4 summarizes many of the student-achievement profiles not included in the previous section. These descriptions provide the names of school districts, contact names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses. Section 5 lists resources school boards can use to build a knowledge base on student achievement. The report concludes with the NSBA's mission statement and a description of its vision.

Examining whether and how regulation affects economic inequality The recent debate over growing inequality in the United States has focused on several causes but has pretty much ignored one potential factor: government regulation. This book is the first serious examination of whether federal regulation, defined broadly, has exacerbated or counteracted economic disparities that pose major long-term political and social consequences. Contributors provide extensive empirical evidence showing how key areas of federal regulation during the past forty years have had varying social and economic impacts across the different strata of American society. The fields of regulation examined in the book include those addressing pharmaceutical products, energy systems, financial institutions, employment, transportation, manufacturing operations, antitrust, and workplace safety. The book synthesizes economic data and research to identify the major impacts of regulation in these fields and assess who enjoys most of the benefits and who incurs most of the costs from each. Overall, the aim is to gauge whether and when regulation, on balance, is either a progressive or a regressive force in the United States. Contributors are leading scholars in law, economics, policy analysis, and the social sciences who bring extensive research backgrounds to their study of the major regulatory fields addressed in each chapter. The book provides policymakers, scholars, and analysts an empirical basis for understanding how regulations affect different sectors of society differently—and the potential impact on inequality of those regulatory differences.

Lewis presents 12 important lessons which will show school districts how to achieve excellence by adopting those principles and practices that have worked for the best-run companies in America.
