This 15th edition of our annual report—Uncertain Forecast: Education Adjusts to a New Economic Reality—investigates the intersection between education and the larger economic environment, an issue that has both captured the nation’s attention and stoked its anxieties. As always, Quality Counts also provides the most comprehensive assessment of the state of American education, grading the nation and states across six distinct areas of policy and performance.

Join us for a series of engaging discussions as leading policymakers, commentators, and analysts debate the impact of the Great Recession on the nation’s schools and consider the challenges and opportunities for innovation in store for state and local officials as they move forward.
