School Superintendents

Champions for Children and Public Education

“The Superintendent is the voice for all the children in the community, including the many children that would have no voice if not for the Superintendent. Today, more than ever, America’s Superintendents have the awesome responsibility to protect public education from the private and political interests that regard our schools as investment opportunities for corporate gains rather than fostering the American tradition of an educated community that is the core of our democratic process.”

American Public Education is the Best Ever!

The dropout rate has been declining since 1972

America's High School Graduates:Results from the 2009 NAEP High School Transcript Study

Graduates earn more credits and complete higher curriculum levels

In 2009, graduates earned over three credits more than their 1990 counterparts, or about 400 additional hours of instruction during their high school careers.

In 2009, a greater percentage of graduates completed higher curriculum levels with greater course requirements than 1990 or 2005 graduates.

This report presents a longitudinal student‐level

analysis of charter school impacts on more than 70 percent of the students in charter schools in

the United States. The scope of the study makes it the first national assessment of charter

school impacts

The group portrait shows wide variation in performance. The study reveals that a decent fraction of charter schools, 17 percent, provide superior education opportunities for their students.

Nearly half of the charter schools nationwide have results that are no different from the local

public school options and over a third, 37 percent, deliver learning results that are significantly

worse than their student would have realized had they remained in traditional public schools.

Poverty is a Reality

Not an Excuse

Poverty is the single greatest factor limiting student achievement

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD

Our unfinished task:

Many low-income students fail to complete high school

Our unfinished task:

Only 29% of low-income students go to college

Our unfinished task:

Only 9% of low-income students complete college

Education is the key to breaking out of the poverty cycle

We are not falling behind, we are pulling apart.

So what do we need to do?
