The Brookings Institution today released a new book detailing the development of six major Obama administration innovation initiatives — the Social Innovation Fund, Investing in Innovation (i3) program, Workforce Innovation Fund, Teen Pregnancy Prevention program, home visiting (MIECHV), and Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training.
The book, Show Me the Evidence by Ron Haskins and Greg Margolis, is required reading for anyone with a broad interest in social innovation. It is available on Amazon or directly from Brookings.
The book launch event, which featured a number of former high-level administration officials and experts in evidence-based policy, is also worth watching. (Note: The event begins at about 14 minutes into the recorded video).
