NPR examines the growing trend of inaccessible or incomprehensible data provided by states on secondary education performance, which offers citizens broken links and hard-to-read education jargon on what scores and access really means. The report is aligned with similar complaints from the higher education community regarding the federal government’s data keeping on colleges and universities, which offers a number of resources providing a number of varying views on retention, graduation rates, postgraduate job placement and other key factors which influence funding and public perception of schools. Without the information, parents across all levels of education are deprived of an accurate context for which schools are an ideal fit for their children, or for their money.
