New State-level Information Available on School Choice, College Entrance Exams, and Arts Education

State-level data on charter schools, voucher programs, college entrance exams, and arts education are now available on the State Education Reforms website. The State Education Reforms website draws primarily on data collected by organizations other than the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), which compiles and disseminates the information in five sections:

  • Accountability;
  • Assessment and Standards,;
  • Staff Qualifications and Development;
  • State Support for School Choice and Other Options; and
  • Student Readiness and Progress through School.

Updates were made to one table in the “Accountability” section and two tables in each of the following sections: Assessment and Standards, Staff Qualifications and Development and Student Readiness and Progress Through School. In the State Support for School Choice and Other Options section, one table was updated and one table was added. These tables may be easily located by looking for the “Updated!” and “New” tags next to the table title.

To view the site, please visit: http://nces.ed.gov/programs/statereform/

The State Education Reforms website is a product of the National Center for Education Statistics at the Institute of Education Sciences, part of the U.S. Department of Education.

The Institute of Education Sciences, a part of the U.S. Department of Education, is the nation’s leading source for rigorous, independent education research, evaluation and statistics.
