Education Week Releases “Quality Counts” Report

Education Week (1/9) has released its 18th annual “Quality Counts” report, titled “District Disruption & Revival.” The report is a package of articles exploring the budgetary, social, and academic pressures that are changing public schools at the district level. The package includes a report on how several districts are coping with “fiscal and educational pressures demanding a break from business as usual,” a profile of Memphis and how educators there are working to implement a variety of rival education models, and a piece on how districts are adjusting to financial realities as the nation slowly rebounds from the recession.
