Where children live significantly affect their chances for success in life, according to the analysis by the Editorial Projects in Education (EPE) Research Center, which based its analysis on its new “Chance-for-Success Index.” The index tracks state efforts to connect education from preschool through postsecondary education and training and the results are available in Quality Counts 2007: From Cradle to Career, Connecting American Education From Birth to Adulthood, produced by Education Week with support from the Pew Center on the States. The report is available online at http://www.edweek.org/go/qc07. NSTA Members: Look for more information in the cover story in your upcoming issue of NSTA Reports.
