In an effort to inform the public and shape education reform in the upcoming year, scholars on the Hoover Institution’s Koret Task Force on K-12 Education today released their annual list of the top five best and top five worst events in American education in 2011. Their list indicates that several positive developments led to greater parental choice, system transparency and teacher accountability; however, “the worst” events indicate that there remains considerable room for improvement.

“We evaluated hundreds of events, laws, programs and studies in creating this list,” said Williamson M. Evers, Hoover research fellow and project director of the Koret Education Task Force’s Best and Worst project.
