Rhode Island Public Schools 1989 Education Indicators: Education Outcomes, Community Context, Policies and Practices.
Rhode Island State Dept. of Education, Providence.
Information on the status of Rhode Island public schools is provided in the form of educational indicators of three types: (1) education outcomes; (2) community context; and (3) policies and practices. Education outcomes are student testing and other measures of student success. Included are student results on the Metropolitan Achievement Test, graduation rates, and attendance rates. Community context indicators describe the characteristics of a community, including demographic, enrollment, and financial resource items. These provide a framework in which education outcomes can be evaluated. Indicators of policies and practices provide descriptions of programs, organization, regulations, and budgets in operation. These indicators are the results of decisions made by officials; they are subject to change if the need arises. Indicators are presented in three tables each for the state as a whole and for Rhode Island's 37 school districts. (SLD)
