WRAL prepares “NC school systems by the numbers”

school-busespng-91b35e2c325e0b5bIn time for the arrival of the new school year, Raleigh-based WRAL has prepared a statewide database of student performance measures in order to compare school districts.

It’s another tool for number-crunchers seeking to draw some conclusions about the unvarnished state of education in North Carolina today.

From WRAL:

In honor of a new school year, WRAL News pulled together some of the most recent data available to show how North Carolina’s 115 school systems are faring and how they compare to one another.

For example, did you know?

  • Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools has the highest average SAT score in the state (1202)
  • Newton-Conover City Schools has the highest graduation rate (95 percent)
  • Edgecombe County Public Schools has the highest middle school teacher turnover rate (46 percent)

Here at Policy Watch, we’ve also pointed out another useful tool in the search for data, through Ed NC’s so-called “data dashboard.”

Have fun crunching.
