How Well Does Each State Do at Producing High-Achieving Students?

In concurrence with the release of a new report, this Webinar featured two of the report’s authors who presented a summary of the findings and took questions from the audience for discussion.

A report released on November 10, 2010 provides new information on the percentage of high-achieving students in the U.S. high school graduating class of 2009 in each of the 50 states, as compared to the percentage of high-achieving students in 56 other countries.

This study was prepared under the auspices of Harvard’s Program on Education Policy and Governance & Education Next in the Taubman Center for State and Local Government at the Harvard Kennedy School.
