Leaders and Laggards: A State-by-State Report Card on Educational Innovation
Two years ago, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Center for American Progress, and Frederick M. Hess of the American Enterprise Institute came together to grade the states on school performance. In that first Leaders and Laggards report, we found much to applaud but even more that requires urgent improvement.
In this follow-up report, Leaders and Laggards: A State-by-State Report Card on Educational Innovation, we turn our attention to the future, looking not at how states are performing today, but at what they are doing to prepare themselves for the challenges that lie ahead.
This discussion featured the report's authors discussing the findings and methodology.
- Arthur J. Rothkopf, senior vice president and counselor to the president, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
- Cynthia G. Brown, director of education policy, Center for American Progress
- Ulrich Boser, research director of Leaders and Laggards
