Education Report Card 2007

Check out where your state falls under...and Washington DC?
...Last year the U.S. Chamber of Commerce launched an effort to dig deeper into the nation's educational effectiveness... to grade all 50 states and Washington, DC, on their K-12 school systems in order to identify both leaders and laggards in the tough business of school performance. It is the states, after all, that are ultimately responsible-both constitutionally and practically-for the quality of schooling.
The Chamber and its partners firmly believe that the traits that have long made the American private sector an engine of global prosperity-its dynamism, creativity, and relentless focus on efficiency and results-are essential to tapping the potential of our educators and schools. It is this understanding that informs and shapes this report.
Thanks to the DC Education Blog for showing me this info.
