Quality Counts 2008 ( a report)

Here is a new national report Quality Counts 2008 sent to me by EdWeek.

(click) HERE is the LINK to the portion on Education in Washington state.

I'll comment further tomorrow. Notice that the achievement gap for children of poverty is being reduced nationally in both reading and writing. Unfortunately it is still growing in Washington State in both math and reading. If a child is poor, the state of Washington does not appear to be pulling its weight in regard to educating that child.
Check out page 5 of the linked report.
