Department of Education Releases 2018 Condition of Education Report

May 24, 2018

The US Department of Education has released its yearly dataset The Condition of Education 2018. The report covers all levels of education measured through key indicators, including not only higher education, but K-12 as well. The congressionally mandated report is provided to Congress to each year to inform policy making to show trends and the most up to date statistics. Many in our community and association look to these datasets, although the collection methods and data shown are in need of some structural changes based on today’s student, it is a good broad view of where the US education system currently stands.
