School Ratings: Reading a School's Report Card

With the rise of the importance of statistics in American culture, it’s no surprise that even schools must keep track of where they stand on the statistical fault line.

Indeed, schools get a report card too, generally every year. Schools are measured on standardized test scores, demographics, and financial information, among other things. It gives its constituents (parents, community leaders and even its students) an accurate glimpse of what happens within its four walls, and can serve to prove to parents that their kids are getting the best education possible.

A school’s report card is its best status snapshot, and its findings can offer up powerful information to its teachers.
