Report on Education Quality Places Connecticut Among National Leaders

studentsEducation Week’s Quality Counts report for 2016 is out and Connecticut scored well compared to most other states, particularly when it comes to the important role education plays here in promoting positive outcomes throughout a person’s life.

Connecticut placed fifth overall among all states and the District of Columbia, and tied for fourth on the  Chance-for-Success Index that captures the importance of education over a person’s lifetime. This index includes indicators such as the percent of 3- and 4-year-olds enrolled in preschool,  the percent of 4th and 8th grade public school students “proficient” on NAEP, and the percent of adults (25-64) with a 2- or 4-year postsecondary degree.
