NC boosts student tracking from cradle to college

Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s effort to learn what works in public education has state officials looking to collect data on some children still in infancy through the time they graduate from college or get a job.

A $70 million Race to the Top federal grant recently awarded to North Carolina will expand academic tracking to include very young children whose families receive government help with subsidized child care or other services.

It builds on a two-year-old database tracking more than 1.5 million public school students between kindergarten and 12th grade. Their teachers are tracked as well.

State education officials last week applied for federal money to expand student tracking into their university or community college career, and when they enter the work force.
