About This Report

Reality Check, a joint project of Public Agenda and Education Week, is the annual report on the progress of the academic-standards movement and the impact of reform efforts on schools and the work world as seen from the perspectives of education’s key stakeholders. The Pew Charitable Trusts and the GE Fund provide support for the project.

The four previous editions of Reality Check appeared in Education Week on Feb. 21, 2001, Feb. 16, 2000, Jan. 11, 1999 (Quality Counts 1999), and Jan. 8, 1998 (Quality Counts 1998).

Public Agenda, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research organization based in New York City, designed the surveys on which this report is based and provided this summary of the findings.

The report was written by Jean Johnson and Ann Duffett.

More findings from the Reality Check surveys are available online at
