How Can Parents Measure School Quality?

I’ve previously posted about concerns related to many letter-grades being given to schools in different parts of the country (see “Parents Get Testy Over Philadelphia’s New School Report Cards”).

I’ve also previously posted about an effort supported by the Boston Globe to create a somewhat broader criteria that parents can use to evaluated schools (see Boston Globe Tries To Help Parents “Find Their Dream School”).

Today, the people behind that Boston rating system have published a fairly extensive column in Education Week explaining it. I think it’s worth checking out the article, headlined How to Measure School Quality.
