New England Secondary School Consortium

Data Dialogue Series

Welcome to the NESSC’s Data Dialogue Series, a collection of data explorations and corresponding dialogue guides to inspire reflection and conversation about a regional achievement gap impacting New England’s students.

We invite you to use the data and dialogue guides below to reflect individuallyor, better yet, with your students, colleagues, and community members—on the relationship between economic disadvantage and high school graduation rates across New England, and to consider what this regional education data can tell you about your local schools.

Keep an eye out for our second Data Dialogue Series in the fall of 2018!
