States Make Progress in Outcomes, Policy
SREB State Progress Reports Detail Growth Toward Goals

News release

SREB states continue to improve public education by several key measures, according to a new report from the Southern Regional Education Board.

Gauging Progress, Accelerating Pace reports on recent growth on outcomes and policy activity in the SREB region. The reports show the 16-state SREB region leading the nation on early childhood education access and quality, narrowing some achievement gaps between racial and ethnic groups, and surpassing the national average for high school graduation rates. Yet the report’s demographic and student achievement data foreshadow the difficult job states face: getting more students college- and career-ready so they can become successful adults and states can meet future workforce needs.
 
This report focuses on the region’s progress — and on determining what it will take to help each state accelerate pace.
