Student outcomes have improved in more than just reading and math
from Education Next (commentary)
Michael J. Petrilli, a contributor for Education Next, writes: "As I indicated last week, I plan to spend the summer writing about whether our schools have improved over the past quarter-century or so — essentially the 'reform era.' There's little doubt, I argued, that outcomes improved dramatically for the lowest-performing students and for children of color from the mid-1990s until the onset of the Great Recession, at least in the key subjects of reading and math. That was especially the case in elementary and middle schools, though high school graduation and college-completion rates were up sharply as well, even if some of that progress might be due to slipping standards."
