Reference: Statistics: NCES Releases Updates to the State Education Reforms Website

News from the National Center for Education Statistics:

New state-level data on charter schools, high school completion credentials, graduation practices, teacher certification, and compulsory school attendance policies are now available on the State Education Reforms website.

The State Education Reforms website, which draws primarily on data collected by organizations other than NCES, compiles and disseminates data on state-level education reform efforts in five areas:

(1) Accountability
(2) Assessment and standards
(3) Staff qualifications and development
(4) State support for school choice and other options
(5) Student readiness and progress through school

The “Accountability,” and “State Support for School Choice and Other Options” sections of the site each had one table updated. Two tables were updated in the “Assessment and Standards” and the “Staff Qualifications and Development” sections, while the “Student Readiness and Progress Through School” section had three tables updated.

These tables can be easily located by the “Updated!” tags next to the table titles.
