DC Test Scores on the Rise

Congratulations to the students, teachers and administrators at DC Public Schools, whose 2008-2009 assessment scores were higher than the preceding years. The numbers themselves are less than stellar, though, with just under half the students in elementary school at “proficient” or better for their grade level in reading and mathematics. High school students are at a mere 40% proficient in reading and mathematics. Pretty scary when you think about the number of kids in DC’s schools who can’t achieve at grade-level.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
