How Does Your Kid's School Rank?
Katherine Mangu-Ward at Reason writes that interested parties can now find out how their school stacks up against other schools using the Education Nation Scorecard. “In fact, most people think their neighborhood public school is pretty OK, or even good,” writes Mangu-Ward. “That’s because they don’t know better.” Mangu-Ward hopes the data will result in a more engaged, knowledgeable parent/student body. Readers, what do you think? Will more data give parents and students the ammunition to help improve schools – or just to complain more? (HT: Megan McArdle) [%comments]
