In Sunday’s column I wrote about the state’s recent Accountability Index which measures and assigns labels to the 2,000-plus public schools.

Some in the education community have objected to how a right-leaning think tank used the numbers, saying they tried to shame poor-performing schools.

The column can be found here.

But I also promised links to the index produced by the State Board of Education and to the Washington Policy Center’s analysis.
