The Boston Opportunity Agenda: Sixth Annual Report Card
Boston Foundation
This "Sixth Annual Report Card" reflects the progress that is being made throughout Boston's entire education pipeline. More than 77,000 school-age children live in the City of Boston. The vast majority, 93%, attend a school in the Boston Public Schools system, a Boston Charter public school, or a Boston Catholic school. The goal with this report card is to identify points where obligations to Boston's students are being met as well as areas where they are falling short. This report card contains the most up-to-date information available on Boston's education pipeline, from kindergarten through college graduation, including measures on: (1) school readiness; (2) 3rd-grade reading proficiency; (3) 10th-grade proficiency; (4) high school completion; (5) dropout rates; (6) postsecondary enrollment and completion statistics; and (7) adult postsecondary attainment. The public systems--the Boston Public Schools and Boston's Charter public schools--use the same assessments. The data for both are gathered from the Boston Public Schools and from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The resource for data for the Catholic schools reflected in this report is the Archdiocese of Boston. [The Boston Indicators Project and the Boston Public Schools Office of Data and Accountability assisted in analyzing and reporting on the metrics in this report. For the fifth Annual Report, see ED581771.]
