Good grade for Arkansas education

Posted By on Thu, Jan 14, 2010 at 8:50 AM

Arkansas ranks 10th among the 50 states and D.C. in Education Week's Quality Counts survey of education policies and student achievement. The overall coverage is here. And you can see a state-by-state map here. Bottom line: Good grades on assessment and standards, a big fat D (against a D+ national average) on student achievement.

If our standards is so good, why is not so many of our kids be learnin so good?
