Education Watch: The State of Educational Equity

This interactive tool by Education Trust provides data that can drive leaders to do better for all students, especially for students from low-income families, students of color, and English learners. The tool provides data at the state-level on critical measures of educational opportunity and achievement from preschool through higher education. These measures are presented in three ways: (1) demographic snapshots of student race, ethnicities and familial income levels; (2) opportunity to learn (e.g., school funding, early childhood education, appropriate discipline measures, strong and diverse educators, and rigorous coursework); and (3) student outcomes (e.g. elementary reading, middle school math, and high school completion and readiness for postsecondary success).
