The Tennessee Report Card released this month shows detailed stats on each of the state’s 1800 public schools, from racial breakdowns to reading scores. But state education officials are highlighting another key function – side-by-side comparison.
Tony Pratt oversees the state’s education data and says in an era of increasing school choice, families want to weigh their options.
“They would be able to compare maybe their zoned school and the magnet or charter school on some of those key data points and see how they stack up.”
The same side-by-side comparison can be done on the district level, which Pratt says may help an out-of-town family moving to the area decide which county to live in.
