Standards Without Equity: Illinois Falls Short in Education Report Card "Oscars"

In case there was any doubt about just how consistently below-average Illinois education is when it comes to overall performance and financial equity, Education Week's Quality Counts report -- the decade-old Oscars of the state report card season -- gives Illinois a C+.

The state does better than average on standards, but far worse on resource equity. "Illinois falls short in resource equity, scoring in the lower tier of states," according to Education Week. "Its wealth-neutrality score is among the worst in the nation." Get well soon, Emil Jones -- your state needs you.
