A Report Card for States and the Nation on Success Indicators
Geography may not be destiny, but things can look very different depending on what state you live in and what the data say about your lifetime prospects. This first of three Quality Counts 2020 installments evaluates the nation and the states on 13 family, school, and socioeconomic markers from the early years and K-12, into adulthood and the working world that make up the EdWeek Research Center’s Chance-for-Success Index. It includes top-to-bottom rankings and letter grades for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, along with analysis about what’s working, what’s not, and how policymakers can respond. In June, the second installment of Quality Counts 2020 will focus on school finance. September’s third and final installment will feature the K-12 Achievement Index, and will pull together all the strands of this year’s data for final summative grades and scores on all the states and the nation.
