Summary

This report analyzes education in Minnesota. After a brief introduction in chapter 1, chapter 2 reviews educational accountability at the national and state levels and the development of Minnesota's own assessment and accountability system. This review not only leads to recommended next steps in that assessment and accountability system, it also offers insights on the federal perspective and on new directions in policy and practices. Chapter 3 describes the students in Minnesota's K-12 system and the resources, such as funding and staffing, through which educational results are obtained. By describing the resources through which educational results are obtained, chapter 3 sets the stage for the description of those results in chapters 4 and 5. Chapter 4 discusses attendance rates, high school coursework, and high school graduation rates among Minnesota's K-12 students. Chapter 5 covers student achievement as reflected in statewide tests. It also compares the achievement of Minnesota students to that of students from other states and other countries in selected subject areas and grades. The last chapter presents major conclusions and recommendations on achievement, course work, attendance, graduation rates, and equity. Four appendices contain a glossary of terms, information on content and performance standards, and other information. Fifty tables provide statewide statistics on education. (Contains 23 references.)
