This morning, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Center for American Progress, and Frederick M. Hess, director of education policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, issued Leaders and Laggards: A State-by-State Report Card on Educational Innovation. It examines what states are doing to prepare themselves for the challenges that lie ahead, based on the premise that “innovative educational practices are vital to laying the groundwork for continuous and transformational change.”

Access it here: http://www.uschamber.com/09reportcard/. There’s a video of the release here, and Secretary Duncan’s remarks are here.

Delaware got:

  • two Bs (staff hiring and evaluation, data)
  • two Cs (School management and finance)
  • three Ds (removing ineffective teachers, pipeline to postsecondary, and technology) 

Are our mediocre grades fair?
