State Comparisons of the Data Included in the 1999 National Education Goals Report and Data Volume
Each year, the Goals Panel reports on progress that states have made toward meeting the eight National Education Goals. To measure progress, 33 indicators were selected. Each indicator includes a baseline measure (collected as close as possible to 1990, the year the Goals were adopted), the most recent update (if available), and an arrow indicating the direction of change.
