It's 'Elementary' for PWC
Hot on the list of districts and systems is how each one matches up against the other in terms of test scores, demographics, and other social and economic factors. The database technologies available through SchoolMatch, along with consulting provided by PWC, will aid systems in mining for information and gathering statistics.
Numbers are staggering when looking at the audience: it is estimated that there are more than 15,000 public school districts and 14,000 accredited private schools across the country.
The alliance is a component of PWC's K-12 Education Consulting Practice.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
