The 2003 Brown Center Report on American Education uses national and state test scores and survey data to evaluate student achievement. This year’s report examines national trends in math and reading, debunks the popular notion that students are being overwhelmed with homework, offers a snapshot of rural schools, and updates a 2002 Brown Center study of charter schools.

On Wednesday, Oct. 22, report author Tom Loveless, the director of the Brown Center, will discuss this year’s findings with the media and the public. Loveless will take questions from the audience following his presentation.

Copies of the report will be available at the briefing. Following the briefing, it will be available online at brookings-edu-2023.go-vip.net/browncenter. The homework portion of the study, which was released at Brookings on Oct. 1, is currently available for downloading at the same link.

A continental breakfast will be served beginning at 9:30am.
