With test scores, college grade point averages and college enrollment in remedial courses as the measure, students in the Wichita public schools hold their own with students in suburban districts. Others have too many graduates unprepared for college-level work. The Wichita Eagle spent four months researching and analyzing thousands of bits of information about more than 200 elementary, middle and high schools -- both public and private -- in Sedgwick, Butler and Harvey counties. Eight reporters and two photographers visited dozens of schools and interviewed scores of educators, parents, students and other experts to learn more about school life.
