A national nonprofit group has released a report that distills the “best practices” used by elementary and secondary schools in 20 states that have proven records of success.
Researchers at the National Center for Educational Accountability at the University of Texas at Austin based their findings on studies over the last six years of more than 250 schools across the country. The researchers singled out 140 schools that consistently outperformed demographically similar schools for at least three consecutive years and across several grades on state exams.
