From the Homefront: Schools to track progress of military kids

Did you know that more than half of military kids are school aged, and they move three times more often than civilian kids. Military children might have different educational experiences when it comes to learning; therefore, starting this school year, a Military Student Identifier will help public school systems collect data to track and evaluate student performance in the wake of the challenges military kids face. The data collected about military-connected students will help identify as a group whether there are common obstacles in the progression of their educations. The logistics of how this will work in each school district are still being hashed out, but read this post to learn answers to some common questions about the identifier.
