Quality Counts 98: The Urban Challenge

The 1998 edition of this Education Week (discussed in the September 13, 1996 Scout Report) special report focuses on the failings and challenges of education in America's urban areas. The analysis makes use of previously unpublished data from the federal government and a survey of 74 large city districts, conducted in collaboration with the Council of the Great City Schools. At the site users will find an executive summary, a discussion of the challenges facing urban schools and some proposed solutions, report cards for urban education in each state, and the results of a public survey on education standards. The report is well organized and offers a number of statistical tables and case studies from Cleveland, Houston, and San Diego.
