NAEP figures came out.
The Milwaukee Public Schools' grade-schools were measured on the NAEP tests.
How bad was it?
Horrible. Awful. Terrible. Rotten. Or worse.....
In mathematics, the percentage of students 'above proficient' was 15% in 4th grade, 12% in 8th.
In reading, the percentage of students 'above proficient' was 15% in 4th, 15% in 8th.
In science, the percentage of students 'above proficient' was 12% in 4th, 6% in 8th. (Yes, 6%.)
Want a comparison? OK. Lets' go Statewide public schools!!!
(Same breakdowns, at or above "proficient"):
mathematics: 42%, 39%
reading: 35%, 39%
science: 41%, 40%
There is no Wisconsin-only score-sheet for private schools. So we'll use the national numbers for grade schools as above.
mathematics: 48%, 47%
reading: 49%, 57%
science: 48%, 43%
So nationally, PRIVATE schools delivered 300-600% better results than Milwaukee PUBLIC schools.
Sounds like more "choice" schools would be immoral, rotten, and terrible for the students.
