Condition of Education
The Condition of Education in Connecticut is the Connecticut State Department of Education’s (CSDE) yearly status report on public education in the state. It fulfills the requirements under Section 10- 4(b) of the Connecticut General Statutes.
It presents indicators that describe the progress of the public education system, the characteristics of its students and educators, and student performance on key indicators of student engagement and student readiness for college and careers. Equity and excellence are the cornerstones of the State Board of Education’s comprehensive plan for public education. Therefore, this report disaggregates data on several of the indicators to separately highlight the experiences and outcomes of students from historically under-performing groups like students with disabilities, English learners, students from low-income families, and those from minority racial/ethnic backgrounds.
