About this site

This site provides education practitioners with links and information tailored to their particular areas of interest. NCES produces a wide array of reports with a broad range of statistical information on education in the U.S. Perhaps more importantly, NCES also develops many web-based tools that make finding and using data easy. This site provides easy access to these and other NCES and IES education resources and to others developed by the U.S. Department of Education.
