On Monday we released an article —“Is the U.S. Catching Up?“–about a brand new Harvard study that compared annual student performance gains between states and compared the U.S. with other countries. The basic finding is that the gains being made by the U.S. put it at about the middle of the pack for developed countries, so the answer is no, the U.S. is not catching up!
Next Tuesday, July 24th, the authors will be hosting a webinar where they will discuss their findings and answer questions. The webinar event will take place from 12:30-1:45pm. You can register for this event here. (Registration is required. )
If you haven’t already, take a look at our article on the study (or read the unabridged version of the report here), and take a look at our interactive map to see where your state ranks nationally. You can also read a press release summarizing the findings.
