I am still puzzled by "High Performance Jurisdictions". Who chooses the list? Why Massachusetts and not California?
But trying to find out more today reveals that my blog yesterday is a leading result on Google blogsearch. It started with Heppell at BETT 2011. By the end of the week there should be more info on a more coherent picture of just what these high performing jurisdictions are like.
I still think bandwidth will come into it.
Search YouTube on "Heppell, BETT" , recent video should turn up.
PS The learning barn is in Maine.
