The most delightful thing about the Holidays is, of course, the kids. And watching them, the question comes to mind: are they getting as good an education as they could be? Well, at least one educational institute in California, of all places, says, “No,”and you might be surprised why.
Pacific Research Institute Senior Director of Education Studies, Lance Azooni, tells Navasota News that under the current phase-one rating system, only about two-thirds of kids here are labeled proficient in reading and math. And it could get even worse.
Only 20% of our kids would be able to meet the final recommended standard, Azooni reports, adding that in comparison to other states, he feels Texas is setting the Bar too low, because, he adds, it’s not just lower income students who are struggling here.
The bottom line, he insists, is parents need to be aware of how their schools are teaching. for all of the information on this research, you can go online to pacificresearch.org
