How Washington’s Student Outcomes Compare with Other States
When examining high school graduation rates, Washington state ranks 41st in the country. However, USA Today recently reported that Washington is the 7th best state for education. And other data states Washington is the 2nd worst when it comes to closing achievement gaps. Where do we really stand?
The Education Trust gives an overview of how Washington truly compares with other states, and answers your questions on how we can make our education system better for every student. Moderated by League of Education Voters Communications Director Arik Korman.
