PowerPoint Presentations Available from U.S. Department of Education

The U.S. Department of Education’s (ED’s) has a slide repository available at www.ed.gov/presentation/. It is a website of presentations (ED calls them decks), which include charts and other graphic data pertinent to graduation, standards, assessments, early learning, and improving education for all students. The slide presentations (on about a dozen different topics) are available to anyone and can be adapted for particular uses. While not specifically geared toward special education issues, the series of slides present some surprising data about improvements made in educational outcomes over time.
