Under Progressive Leadership: DC Schools 83% Not Proficient in Reading
For all the talk progressives make about bogus issues like the war on woman and income inequality, the reality is our public schools under their control are abject failures.
CNS News reports the public schools in Washington, D.C., spent $29,349 per pupil in the 2010-2011 school year, according to the latest data from National Center for Education Statistics, but in 2013 fully 83 percent of the eighth graders in these schools were not “proficient” in reading and 81 percent were not “proficient” in math.
These are the government schools in our nation’s capital city – where for decades politicians of both parties have obstreperously pushed for more federal involvement in education and more federal spending on education.
Government has manifestly failed the families who must send their children to these schools, and the children who must attend them.
