The "New" Think Tanks: Management Consulting Firms

Over at EdWeek, Dean Millot continues his analysis of the ideas market in education with the conclusion that it is management firms like The Parthenon Group, Alvarez and Marsal, Boston Consulting Group, and The Bridgespan Group deserve much more of our attention and respect (The Real Education “Think Tanks”).

Logo_bcg As Millot explains, these organizations are big, getting bigger, and actually have had their ideas adopted and implemented. "Management consulting is becoming the new think tank in education policy, and for those interested an emerging school improvement market, learning more about their work is probably more important than following the education policy marketing shops."
