The State of Education 2018
West Virginia Department of Education
The purpose of the report is to give a review of public education and depict how the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) and West Virginia Board of Education (WVBE) are addressing the needs of students as they prepare to enter college or the workforce. The report highlights successes achieved during the 2017-2018 school year through the combined effort of many people, partnerships, agencies and communities. West Virginia has the third highest graduation rate in the country at 89.4 percent; it ranks sixth in the nation for quality and access to early education programs due to its support of Universal Pre-K; and the state's commitment to Career and Technical Education (CTE) is resulting in more students earning industry-recognized credentials while still in high school. The report also highlights educator preparation and leadership development and outlines public funding for education.
