Maryland Schools Ranked Among Highest
A report just released by Education Week ranks Maryland's public schools among the top in the nation. The report, Quality Counts, ranks Maryland third best in the nation, behind only New York and Massachusetts. Each of the States and DC were ranked according to 17 indicators in six broad categories. Among Maryland's strengths, early childhood education, adult outcomes, spending, and standards. Areas for improvement include college readiness, and accountability for quality, and building and supporting capacity in the teaching profession.
Congratulations to the teachers and students in Maryland Schools, and something for each of us to think about next time we wonder where our tax dollars are going.
