Since its start in 2017, the annual State of Education report has served as a barometer of key indicators of public school performance as well as timely challenges that public schools are facing and how they are coping with them.

The 2023 report covers a vast array of statistics gathered from publicly available data sources, responses from a survey sent to all school district superintendents and polling of parents with school-age children. The report delves into school finances, budget pressures, teacher shortages and student mental health issues.
