Missouri’s Report Card and ESSA Requirements - Kansas City Policy Breakfast
Missouri has spent more than $6 billion in 2019 on public education.
Do we know what we are getting for our money? How well are our schools performing? Which schools are performing better than others?
Dr. Susan Pendergrass has created a report card that evaluates and grades how well Missouri provides school performance information based on federal requirements in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).
Join us at this Kansas City policy breakfast where Dr. Michael Q. McShane discusses the findings from this research.
