How do states support their public schools?
from The Washington Post
From Feb. 9:
How do the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia support their public schools? Badly, according to a new report card (see in full below) which evaluates their performance on six key criteria and finds all of them wanting. The best overall grade is a C, with most states earning D's or F's. The report card is being issued by the Network for Public Education, a nonprofit group co-founded several years ago by education historian and activist Diane Ravitch to advocate for America's public school system. The authors evaluated states on criteria they see as promoting a professional teaching force, equitable and sufficient funding and equal opportunities for all students to succeed — all critical to the health of public schools.
