Startling mobility statistics.

Did you know that 13 percent of all students in kindergarten through eighth grade change schools four or more times? That is a lot of kids, and a lot of moves. (And we’re not talking about progressing from elementary to middle school.)

If you are interesting in writing about mobility, check out this GAO report that came out last month. And if you don’t already, subscribe to GAO’s reports on education. They don’t come burdensomely often, but they are interesting when they do. And sometimes a juicy tidbit about your district will pop up.
