Science scores in

Filed under: Student Performance — Editor @ 8:18 pm

RS reminds me that the science scores are in – as reported at the projo.

It is widely accepted that if a student does not read well by the 4th grade they are set up for failure.  Science is just a reflection of those failings.  And I don’t buy the “lack of adequate curriculum” as a viable excuse – if Barrington gets it, then other schools have access to the same information.

Pasted below are school scores.

More than 33,000 students in grades 4, 8 and 11 took the state’s first-ever science test in May, and results were released yesterday. A district breakdown of the percentage of students proficient on the test:
