A state education panel has created a database on the Internet it hopes will allow people to better evaluate South Carolina's public schools.
The Education Oversight Committee's new online database allows viewers to search for schools based on several criteria, including performance ratings, number of students and poverty levels. It also includes searches for percentage of teachers with advanced degrees, teacher retention rates and per-pupil spending.

The Palmetto Achievement Challenge Tests (PACT) is a standards-based accountability measurement of student achievement in four core academic areas - English language arts (ELA), mathematics, science, and social studies. The PACT items are aligned to the South Carolina academic standards developed for each discipline. An accountability system and a statewide test, such as the PACT, are mandated by the South Carolina Education Accountability Act of 1998 and the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).
