"Required Reading"

The final draft of "Raising Student Achievement in the St Louis Public Schools" was posted on the SLPS web site on Thursday, June 10th.

In a press release dated May 5th, Mayor Slay called this very report "required reading for anyone who cares about the education of children."

Funny how long it takes for such an important document to reach the reading public.

Also worth a look is the SLPS MAPattack web site set up for the priority schools that need the most improvement in test scores. Oddly the web pages for each school are not linked from the main list of schools. Indeed, many of the priority schools have only very basic information on their regular web pages.

Also very interesting:
  • School Report Cards for SLPS and St. Louis charter schools;

  •, a national site including parent reviews of some SLPS and charter schools.
