New State-Level Data on the State Education Reforms Website
New state-level data on arts education, early childhood education, as well as school, college, and career readiness are now available on the NCES State Education Reforms website. The State Education Reforms website, which draws primarily on data collected by organizations other than NCES, compiles and disseminates data on state-level education reform efforts in five areas:
(2) Assessment and standards
(3) Staff qualifications and development
(4) State support for school choice and other options
(5) Student readiness and progress through school
The “Assessment and Standards” section of the site had two tables updated and one table added. In the “Staff Qualifications and Development” section, a new table was added. Three tables were updated and one table was added in the “Student Readiness and Progress Through School” section. These tables can be easily located by the “Updated!” and “New!” tags next to the table titles.
