Every state struggles with gaps in the outcomes it delivers for students and families, especially when they are Black, Latinx, low-income or have special needs.
But it’s not just the achievement gap and the opportunity gap, there is also an information gap. According to Data Quality Campaign, 81% of parents want to know how schools are serving children like theirs. But most states are still falling short.
- 41 states fail to share data on at least one critical group of students.
- 26 states do not share out discipline data.
- 25 states do not share required information on teacher qualifications.
Tell your state to provide the information that families and educators need to make good choices and hold their schools accountable.
