Good News and Bad News on The Condition of Education 2014

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has released a new document that summarizes developments and discusses trends in education using the latest available data. The Condition of Education 2014 presents a 42-indicator progress report on education in America. It includes the demographics of schools, resources for schooling, and outcomes of education. Good news such as having almost two-thirds of three- to five-year olds in preschool is contrasted with the knowledge that one in five school-aged children lives in poverty, which is an increase from one in seven in 2000.
