Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont have agreed on a common method to compare education data from one state to the next. Through its Common Data Project, the New England Secondary School Consortium recently released figures that look at high school graduation and dropout rates — as well as rates of college enrollment and retention — for every New England state except for Massachusetts.

While many states have metrics to measure the performance of their high schools, those metrics, as well as the criteria for determining them, typically vary from state to state, which can lead to a comparison between states that might not be a true reflection of how one state is performing compared with the next.
