Goals and State Progress Reports
SREB analysts monitor, measure and report on state’s progress toward six Challenge to Lead 2020 Goals for education, which span early childhood through higher education and the workforce.
The Goals help state leaders focus on the full education continuum and the critical transitions from one stage to the next. They call for states to focus attention on both the outcome measures (such as student achievement results and graduation rates) as well as the policies that will bring tangible results.
In June 2016, SREB updated its goals to reflect policy recommendations in three of its latest commission reports. Challenge to Lead 2020: Refreshed 2016 helps guide the SREB region to meet the goal of leading the nation in educational progress.
