How are Georgia's schools doing?

Today, the state's Office of Student Achievement released the first information from the latest report cards for state schools.

One website offers a simple way to look through all the information. Right now, you can find graduation drop out, and attendance rates and college entrance exam scores.

Gradually, more data will be added, including school test scores. The latest report cards may be more helpful to educators because the information is broken down into various categories.

"It's really important that every subgroup improve," said Dougherty County Superintendent Sally Whatley. "You've got to know whether your subgroups in race, whether your students with disabilities have improved."
