Push for single rating of LA schools challenges state's multi-dimensional accountability system

A Los Angeles Unified School District plan to rank its schools on a 1-to-5 scale is getting pushback from some school board members who argue that school performance can’t be quantified by a single number, according to an article in EdSource. The article cites a 2019 voter poll of California’s revised School Dashboard, conducted by PACE and the USC Rossier School of Education. It found that Californians prefer the Dashboard’s system of using multiple measures to assess schools. Getting Down to Facts II, a 2018 comprehensive research project of PACE and Stanford University, included an analysis and critique of the original School Dashboard.
