Quality Counts 2011 Live Stream

Education Week Presents

Uncertain Forecast: Education Adjusts to a New Economic Reality

Tuesday, Jan. 11, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern


Join Education Week and top leaders in the field for a daylong, live-streamed discussion of K-12 policy and economics, plus the release of our 15th annual Quality Counts report, an in-depth assessment of the challenges facing the states and how successfully education systems are meeting those challenges.

The presentations and roundtable discussions, produced with support from the American Institutes for Research, will investigate the impact of the recession, federal stimulus, and broader economic conditions on the nation’s schools. Our researchers will also discuss the findings in the Quality Counts report, announce this year’s state grades and rankings, and sit down with the schools chief of the top-ranked state for a conversation about what works.

A link to watch this event live online and the Quality Counts report will be available here on Jan. 11.
