The highly anticipated and dreaded results were released today and for Nashville students, it’s nothing to celebrate. As a matter of fact, we should be moved to action.
According to Jason Gonzales of the Tennessean:
Only 22.8 percent of all high school students are listed as on track or mastered reading in their grade level, and 12.2 percent are on track or mastered their grade level in math.
Sure, the students were taking tests new to the state and, sure, the initial administering of said tests were botched. That, unfortunately, does not erase the fact that many of last year’s seniors left us unprepared.
