The Ed Trust compares proposed growth models

The Education Trust has been very explicitly concerned about the risks of relying only on growth models for accounability. There is the concern that focusing only on growth rates will lower attainment expectation for the nation's neediest students. The Trust compares the stark differences between the Alaska and Arkansas plans in their article and provides a table that compares the strengths and weakness of all of the proposals. This is an easy and informative read for those not prepared to wade through all of the propoals themselves.
