America’s Best and Worst Metro Areas for School Quality (Guest: Adam Tyner)
No two schools are exactly equal, but how can we rank the best, and worst, across the country? Adam Tyner joins the show to lend his helping hand.
In this episode of the School Reform News podcast, Heartland’s Tim Benson is joined by Adam Tyner, associate director of research at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, to discuss Fordham’s new report, America’s Best and Worst Metro Areas for School Quality. Find out how they quantify their rankings, whether the "best" public schools have the highest achievement, which metros fared well, and which metros fared poorly.
