School reform [sic] flunks again

Washington Times - Poor and black D.C. third-graders recently tested worse in reading than they did five years earlier, according to a new study by D.C. Action for Children.

In addition, reading proficiency for all D.C. third-graders remained stagnant over that period... DC Action for Children found a significant decline in reading scores for poor and black third-graders. It also found that poor third-graders at schools with high concentrations of poverty scored significantly worse in reading than poor students at wealthier schools.

More school reform failures
