Some state or national news of interest:
WMAR-2 News reviewed and compared the achievement percentage of elementary, middle, and high school students in Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Cecil, Frederick, Harford, Howard, Kent, and Queen Anne’s Counties.
None reached their annual target or showed improvement since the 2018-2019 academic year.
“Only Carroll County Elementary students reached or surpassed 50 percent proficiency.
In Baltimore City the overall proficiency percentage is below double digits among elementary (9.9%) and middle school students (6.7%).”
A majority of students in most Maryland school districts are well below average in math proficiency. https://t.co/GqIC7dYRGm
