In this video, Education Next contributing editor Jay Greene discusses his Global Report Card, which measures student achievement in nearly every school district in the U.S. against student achievement in 25 other countries.
The rankings of 13,636 U.S. school districts can be found in the Global Report Card, available on the website of the George W. Bush Institute, where readers can see how students in each school district compare to students in 25 other nations.
