The State We're In: 2010. A Report Card on Education in Illinois
Advance Illinois
This Report Card is the first full assessment of the educational performance as a state, from birth through higher education. It compares performance to other states, looks at recent trends, and shows whether Illinois is meeting their obligations to all students or just a limited few. The scope of the report runs from birth through higher education. It covers a broad range of measures from student test scores to dropout rates, from the availability of preschool to the quality of learning environments in schools. This report card has three aims: (1) to outline what it means to be ready at each transition; (2) to identify the conditions in schools that lead to success; and (3) to clearly understand the results we are getting. The Report Card begins with a demographic profile of the Illinois education system. It is then organized into three sections: (1) Early Education; (2) K-12; and (3) Post-Secondary Attainment. Each section provides data on Key Outcomes, as well as relevant Conditions for Learning & Leading Indicators.
