Quality Counts

Quality Counts is Education Week's annual report on state-level efforts to improve public education.


First Installment:

Quality Counts 2018: Grading the States

Quality Counts 2018: Grading the States This 22nd edition of Quality Counts, an annual state-by-state assessment of public education, paints a portrait of middling performance overall with patches of high achievement, along with perennial struggles to improve on the part of states mired at the bottom. This is the first of three data-driven Quality Counts packages this year exploring distinct aspects of the performance of America's public schools.

Second Installment:

Quality Counts 2018: School Finance

Education Week puts the nation's K-12 finance performance under the microscope in this second installment of Quality Counts 2018, looking at how much gets spent state by state, and how fairly it's divvied up.

Third Installment:

Quality Counts 2018: K-12 Achievement and Chance for Success

The third and final installment of Quality Counts 2018 digs deeply into the data behind how states rank on academic achievement and on students' chance for success in a complex, ever-changing society.
