Accolades for Texas Schools
After the 1996 National Education Summit, an independent organization was created to help American states to improve their education systems. It's called Achieve, Inc., and its report on Texas schools is a litany of praise for the Lone Star State's commitment to reform in the education sector.
"While the critical refrain heard from some about Texas is that only tests drive the education system, Achieve found a notable and unusual degree of alignment among standards, tests, curriculum, instruction, and teacher preparation and professional development."
