Educating The Public

School Matters is a Standard and Poor's site that offers comparison tools, benchmarks, and performance indicators designed to help policymakers and others better understand what is happening in our school systems, and how much we are spending related to student achievement. The site provides data and analysis on schools and districts nationwide. School Matters provides access to a broad set of information about schools and school districts, including student achievement measures, including national and state test results, as well as participation, attendance, graduation, and dropout-promotion rates, extensive financial data for each school district, along with state and county comparisons, performance in the context of the learning environment, which includes class size, teacher qualifications, and student demographics, adult education levels, household incomes, and labor force statistics.
