Topping page 1 of the May 2001 issue of School Reform News is coverage of the first annual meeting of the Black Alliance for Educational Options, which attracted more than 600 school choice advocates to Milwaukee, Wisconsin in early March. In an expanded "state education roundup," School Reform News Managing Editor George Clowes calls attention to school choice proposals--tuition tax credits and vouchers, for example--introduced in a dozen state legislatures this year. Other stories cover President Bush's plan to use the National Assessment of Educational Progress as a key tool for measuring progress in his education reform proposals; the striking successes achieved by minority students enrolled in Advantage Charter Schools; school reform as a key issue in big-city mayoral races; bilingual reform; and discrimination in the SAT.
