Beyond Test Scores: Imagining New Ways to Measure NYC's High Schools

8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs and Insideschools.org.

What matters most in high school? Graduation rates and Regents test scores? College-oriented academics, supportive teachers - or extra-curricular activities? All of these things matter to students, but inside information is hard to find. There is also intense debate about what makes for a "good" high school and how this can be measured.

The Center for New York City Affairs and Insideschools.org will unveil Inside Stats, a new high school scorecard designed to provide a well-rounded picture of NYC's high schools using the data available now. But are there better ways to measure our schools?
