Quality Counts 2010 - Education Week's Annual Education Report Card
States posted their highest scores for polices related to standards, assessments, and accountability. The nation as a whole earned a B in this area, with 20 states receiving grades of A or A-minus. The top-ranking states -Indiana, Louisiana, Ohio, and West Virginia - had near-perfect showings on the policies examined, many of which have been tracked since the report's inaugural edition in 1997.
"Over the years, states have made tremendous progress in adopting policies that establish standards for academic content, align assessments to those standards, and hold schools accountable for results," said Christopher B. Swanson, vice president of Editorial Projects in Education, the nonprofit organization that publishes Education Week. "In fact, many policies that were considered highly innovative when we first launched "Quality Counts" 13 years ago are now commonplace."
"Quality Counts 2010" is supported by the Pew Center on the States. The full "Quality Counts 2010" report and interactive state report cards:
