Finding a Path covers data and policies for each SREB state’s progress in high school, postsecondary and the workforce. Watch for reports on birth to middle grades in 2023. These are SREB’s 10th biennial reports to states on educational progress and the final set for the 2020 Challenge to Lead Goals. They provide comparable data so states can see how they relate to one another, the Southern region and the nation. New this year: sections on the K-12 teacher and postsecondary workforces.

To help policymakers assess and improve college affordability in their states, SREB provides tailored reports on the policies, programs and prices that drive affordability. Each member-state profile details net price at different types of institutions, state financial aid based on need or other factors, student borrowing, and percentage of family income needed to pay for college at different income levels.
