Delaware student test scores released; no major gains, losses Jessica Bies, The News Journal
For some school districts, reaching that bar has been difficult, however. Gov. John Carney said in a statement that he thought true progress was being made in education and there are bright spots in the data where some schools have made notable gains.
“But the difficult truth remains that too many of our students in the City of Wilmington — our largest city and the economic and cultural engine of our state — are being left behind,” he said. “That is something that we cannot allow to continue. We must do more to help our most disadvantaged students — those affected by poverty, stress, and trauma.”
Come on John ! Same old, same old!! Your recent veto added more chains to our most neediest at-risk children. Continuing Marekll’s lies is not going to help children.
SAT scores also stagnant
High school juniors in Delaware take the SATs, which are also used to measure proficiency in English language arts and math.
In English, 53 percent of students were proficient, which is the same as last year. In math, 29 percent were proficient, compared with 31 percent last year.
Though at least 95 percent of students are supposed to take the SAT, many schools did not meet that benchmark.
And here we have the end result ! Continual FAILURE!
