D.C. Standardized Test Scores Released 

Theola Labbe and Dan Keating of the Washington Post report today that there was some small improvements in District of Columbia test scores this year. So roughly 35% of students in the nation's capital are proficient in math and reading. 65% are not.

Interesting how the charter schools and D.C.P.S. are just lumped together. This doesn't surprise me. I think an analysis of these scores will show that charters are not doing any better then traditional schools at educating these kids. Its still too early in the game for there to be much difference.

What did get my attention was long established charter schools like Cesar Chavez not making AYP. I wonder what their excuse is?
