There is more to education than the 3 R's: measuring what matters

Measuring What Matters

People For Education did a survey
More than 4000 people responded to the Measuring What Matters survey, and expressed strong support for broadening the goals for education to include areas beyond literacy and numeracy:
  • 84% said the general public definitely or probably does not understand how schools contribute to students' success in domains like social emotional skills, creativity, health and citizenship.
  • 47% would probably or definitely not assume that if a school has good literacy and numeracy scores it is doing a good job overall.
Percentage of respondents who agree with expanded goals and measures
