The AP, via AccessNorthGA, has the latest figures from Georgia’s annual No Child Left Behind report:
- 310: schools on the “needs improvement” list in 2005-06
- 99: schools that came off the list from the previous year
- 55: schools added to the list this year
- 69.5: high school graduation rate by percentage in 2006, which is statistically the same as the previous year
- 78.7: percentage of the 2,072 schools tested who made “adequate yearly progress” in 2005-06
- 81.9: percentage of the 2,040 schools tested who made “adequate yearly progress” the previous year
Looks like another general election season of calls for “more, more, more taxpayer money to prop up the (failing) government schools!” Anybody surprised?
