There have been a lot of reports on the this year’s Phi Delta Kappa poll (see The Best Posts/Articles On This Year’s Phi Delta Kappa and Gallup Education Poll — 2015).
An Ed Week post, though, highlighted what I think is the most interesting result — those surveyed ranked student engagement and student’s feeling hopeful about their future as the top indicators of a school’s success. Those were ranked higher than graduation, college attendance, or job placement.
Of course, it’s tricky on how to exactly measure those two qualities, but the survey results are, nevertheless, important to keep in mind.
