National test scores for kids are still plummeting despite the end of the “pandemic,” a marker that experts claimed would see a rise scores.
According to the Washington Post, scores have plummeted for 13-year-olds with the worst drop in 50 years in math.
Student scores plunged nine points in math and four points in reading on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), often regarded as the nation’s report card. The release Wednesday reflected testing in fall 2022, comparing it to the same period in 2019, before the pandemic began.
“These results show that there are troubling gaps in the basic skills of these students,” said Peggy G. Carr, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), which administers the tests. The new data, she said, “reinforces the fact that recovery is going to take some time.”
The average math score is now the same as it was in 1990, while the average reading score is the same as it was in 2004.
Naturally, since this is the left-wing Post, the paper is more interested in the fact that minority students are having even worse results.
But, it doesn’t really matter because it is happening across the board.
The liberal miseducation establishment is failing your children, America.
