AbstractBased on an extensive and critical review of research on districts from the past twenty years, the authors of this paper propose a theory of districts as institutional actors in improving achievement and advancing equity. In our theory, districts serve four primary and interdependent roles. These roles include providing leadership for instruction, reorienting the organization, establishing policy coherence, and maintaining an equity focus.
