Mayors' Report Card on Education: Informed and Engaged for Student Success
George W. Bush Institute, Education Reform Initiative
Making robust and reliable information about schools accessible is one of the most powerful ways to foster engagement and promote informed decisions that will shape our communities. Though education data is frequently collected and aggregated at the state level, data is rarely synthesized across cities. This report provides comparable information at the district and city level so mayors can engage in their city's education landscape by understanding each city's context, charting progress, and identifying challenges in public education. It also helps mayors engage with policymakers, parents, superintendents, educators, and other key stakeholders as they improve public education. The Mayors' Report Card, based on key topics in education and compiled by the Bush Institute's Education Reform Initiative, looks at 33 cities across the nation and presents the information for policymakers and parents in an easy-to-use and illustrated format. This report contains a district report card for each city, showing basic facts such as enrollment and school revenue, student achievement data, early childhood data, information on teachers, and college and career readiness data. The following are appended: (1) Student Achievement: Combined NAEP Score by Subgroup, 2013; (2) College Readiness: Average Composite ACT Scores, 2014; (3) Early Childhood: Pre-K Availability, 2012; (4) Teachers: Average Salaries and Cost of Living, 2011; and (5) Sources and Methodology.
