DeEvening Links: Keeping score

The D.C. Public Schools have debuted new online school “scorecards” — what the Post’s Bill Turque deems “the school system’s attempt to expand transparency in an increasingly competitive education marketplace.” Now listed for easy consumption: standardized test scores, attendance, disciplinary figures and retention rates for highly qualified teachers. Chancellor Kaya Henderson appeared on WUSA-TV this evening to explain the scorecards to anchor Derek McGinty.
