Know Your School
KnowYourFloridaSchool.org is a model online school report card that serves as a prototype for states seeking to empower and inform parents and communities with transparent, understandable school data. As states work to implement the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), KnowYourFloridaSchool.org is a real-world, replicable example of how states can reinvent school reporting and better communicate a variety of school-level data to parents.
Policy Report: Turn and Face the Strain
Turn and Face the Strain: Age Demographic Change and the Near Future of American Education is a groundbreaking report by Dr. Matthew Ladner outlining the fierce battle looming between the needs of public health care and education. “Hurricane Gray” is coming ashore in all 50 states, and every day for the next 15 years, 10,000 Baby Boomers will reach retirement age.

Read the report now to learn more about the changing demographics in America and how education policy can help mitigate many of the issues.
