Eric.ed.gov – New Comparing Kansas Report Shows Kansas Lagging in Educational Improvement and Funding [Comparing Kansas 2017 Executive Summary]

eric.ed.gov har udgivet:

Kansas ranks 10th in the nation on an average of 15 indicators of student success, but has been improving much slower than most states. Since 2008, total funding per pupil in Kansas has increased less than half as much as the U.S. average, and less than one-quarter as much as the top achieving states. “There is growing evidence that as Kansas has fallen behind in educational funding, we are also falling behind in student success outcomes,” said Mark Tallman, assistant executive director of the Kansas Association of School Boards. “We are in danger of falling from a top achieving state to average or worse.” The full 2017 Comparing Kansas report contains detailed information on 15 indicators of student educational success and how they align with the “Rose Capacities”; definitions and process for ranking states, selecting aspiration states and peer states; state funding and budget allocation; teacher salaries and pupil-teacher ratios; and “close up” examination of educational attainment by 18-24-year-olds; high school graduation rates; national reading and math tests; and ACT/SAT results for Kansas and comparison groups of states. It uses the most recent data for student achievement, generally from 2015 and 2016, and state funding information from 2015, as well as extensive state demographic and economic data from various national sources. This summary highlights key findings from the full report. The 2017 Comparing Kansas Supplement provides comparisons between Kansas and relevant state groups on key demographic variables. It is a companion piece to Comparing Kansas 2017 that helps show how factors outside of school funding may have an impact on student outcomes in each state.
