In this era of different educational options, parents now have a tool to help them pick the right schools for their children.
The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) announced Thursday the launch of a new Wisconsin School Quality Map. The interactive map will allow parents to look at schools in their area to see which school is best for their children to attend.
“It is our sincere belief that parents make better decisions when they have access to school information,” said Will Flanders, the director of research for WILL. “It is our mission with the Wisconsin School Quality Map to help fill that need by providing an easy to use tool to quickly determine the best schools in a neighborhood, town, region, or state.”
Some of the features of the Wisconsin School Quality Map include:
- Color rankings that match the Performance Ranking based on WILL’s groundbreaking ‘Apples to Apples’ study. This ranking allows users to make comparisons between schools that account for the sociodemographic profile of each school.
- Demographic information about schools that include the racial composition, economic status, and disability status of students.
- The Department of Public Instruction school report card score and growth score.
