Our School System 20/20 series of briefs, Data Decisions, highlights common opportunities school systems have to yield big results for students by adjusting their current resource use. It is based on ERS' 10 years of close partnership with district leaders across the country and our extensive comparative database. We believe that when districts consider these crucial resource issues, they can move closer to the School System 20/20 vision.
In the third brief, learn how districts can target resources to better support teachers through job-embedded professional growth.
