slides: Report Card: See New England’s School Policy + Performance Grades

Monday, January 13, 2014

 

In Education Week's newly released Quality Counts 2014, a survey of K-12 achievement, the nation as a whole earns a “C-” while Massachusetts tops the nation with an “A-” for giving its students the best “chance for success.”

Read the full article here

The survey's index for Chance for Success offers perspective on links between education and beneficial outcomes at different stages of a student’s life. The index uses 13 indicators from childhood through adulthood to measure three life stages:

*Early-childhood years

*Participation and performance in formal education

*Educational attainment and workforce outcomes during adulthood.
