K-12 "Fast Facts" From the First Day of Session


On the first day of the 2015 legislative session, the House Education Committee heard a report entitled “Fast Facts (PDF)” to provide members an overview of the state of education in Washington. Of particular interest to members of the committee was slide 14, which breaks down the demographic characteristics of dropouts. Some were surprised that there are more girls who drop out of school than boys.


Slides 17 and 22 deal with principal characteristics, including a comparison of the ethnic background of administrators, teachers, classified staff and students.
