It's 'Elementary' for PWC

PricewaterhouseCoopers and SchoolMatch have just signed an agreement to offer joint consulting services to elementary and secondary schools across the United States.

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.
