Delaware has won a national award for innovative education policy that is making systematic changes to improve student outcomes across the state.
The Education Commission of the States will honor Delaware in May for winning the 2013Frank Newman Award for State Innovation, which recognizes states and territories for enacting innovative education reforms or implementing innovative programs that go beyond marginal or incremental changes to improve student outcomes on a large scale.
