CA Parents Like New Report Card

CA Parents Like New Report Card

February 13, 2018

Education Week’s Daarel Burnette II reports that, despite initial backlash, a newly released poll conducted by the University of Southern California and Public Analysis for California Education finds that Golden State parents “are pretty fond of a redesigned and highly controversial statewide school report card,” which was released in 2017 as part of California’s ESSA plan. According to the poll, a majority of California parents who are “familiar with the report card” had an “overall positive reaction to its design and components.” However, a majority also felt it should include overall ratings for individual schools.
