Progress, But Many Problems
As we've announced before, student achievement in elementary and middle school is up over the past 6 years.
The Education Trust says that based on the latest NAEP 4th grade tests, New York is 3rd in reading growth for African-American students and 2nd in reading growth for Latino students from 1998 (when standards were raised and the new tests began) to 2005.
New York's own tests also show progress in elementary and middle school.
