My proposal is to embrace evaluation across the government and government-funded services. Before adding or subtracting more money, let's look at what works. Some of this is already being done. One City Summer Initiative, which has morphed into One City Youth, is all about evaluation. Take a look at the evaluations of One City Summer Initiative.
And before you jump all over me, this is not directed at a particular candidate or set of proposals. This is based on years of work in public policy in DC. And understanding that it's easy to criticize without having all the information.
All I'm suggesting is that we work smarter based on agreed-upon outcomes and evaluation tools.
