The document below was part of a presentation made at the EPISD board of trustees meeting the other day:
It certainly does not look good.
Before any of our loyal commenters point this out, let me say that I know nothing about how to interpret these results. Having more students taking the test could certainly explain the decrease in scores.
What got my attention is the last paragraph. “16% of those who took the SAT in the class of 2015 met the College Readiness benchmark”.
EPISD is teaching the kids what the state requires. Our kids score about as well on the state tests as those in other large cities so it would appear that EPISD is doing what the state expects. Could it be that the state is getting in the way?
Maybe as citizens we should find ways to help educate these kids.
Maybe some of our readers can enlighten us.
We deserve better
