What matters most in high school? Graduation rates and Regents test scores? College-oriented academics, supportive teachers – or extra-curricular activities?

The Center for New York City Affairs and will unveil Inside Stats, a new high school scorecard designed to provide a well-rounded picture of NYC’s high schools using the data available now. But are there better ways to measure our schools?
