Why school ratings should stress learning gains

from Education Next (commentary)

Imagine how it might feel to be an educator at a school deemed "failing," despite raising students' performance dramatically. Unfortunately, that's a reality for some of the nation's most dedicated educators, especially those serving in historically marginalized communities. That's because many states and districts evaluate schools on the basis of how many students achieve proficiency standards on standardized tests rather than how far schools move students, regardless of where they start on the achievement spectrum.
