Making the Grade: Debating School Performance Ratings Webinar/EventJanuary 11, 2018
This webinar will present findings from Rating the Ratings, followed by a conversation on the merits and downfalls of summative ratings between ratings-proponent Michael Petrilli, president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, and ratings-skeptic Phillip Lovell, vice president of policy development and government relations at the Alliance for Excellent Education.
This webinar focused on a new report from the Alliance for Excellent Education, "Paper Thin? Why All High School Diplomas Are Not Created Equal." The report analyzes the degree to which traditionally underserved students graduate from high school having earned a college- and career-ready diploma in comparison with their peers for the Class of 2014. The analysis reveals that while many states offer students multiple pathways to a diploma, not all pathways align with college- and career-ready expectations.
