This graphic has been floating around town for a couple of weeks:
It shows the percentage of students who took the state standardized tests this year that passed. We don’t know as a fact that the numbers are accurate.
EPISD has the lowest scores in every test category.
Is that because EPISD’s students are somehow different than those in the other districts? Are they more financially challenged? Are more of them from households that don’t converse in English? Are EPISD’s kids just dumber?
Could it be the teachers? Are they lazier? Less competent? Less professional?
If EPISD wants to attract more students to the district they might start by providing a better education.
We deserve better
