Occupied Republic of Texas yankee Indoctrination Centers called “Public Schools” students’ standardized test scores dropped dramatically during the FAKE “pandemic”, especially in math
Getting the little darlings ready for UT I see!
Well, don’t take advanced math to learn how to use a huge dildo for asexual pleasure.
FAKE PANDEMIC, REAL CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN! OCCUPATION TEXAS SCHOOLS “GRADUATED” IGNORANT ZOMBIES WHO COULD FOLLOW THE RULES & NOT THINK INDEPENDENTLY ALREADY
I recall a couple of times when I inquired of my daughter who went to a special high school for the intellectually gifted in Texas where she had a mentor who was a big wig in a local bank, what the hell they taught in that school when she did not know some basic history and economic facts.
Once I was explaining Stonewall Jackson was her cousin.
She said who is that?
Another time her mother and I found a very well maintained older delta 88 Oldsmobile and financed it for her with payments of $99.00 a month.
Feeling big, important and independent she with no credit history wanted the loan in her name .
In the first place she did not understand putting it in her name would jack the interest rates way up meaning larger payments.
When I explained the loan was already in place and one did not just change the name on a loan willy nilly.
She looked at me in all seriousness and said, just tell them you don’t want the loan anymore.
Years later when I asked her what the hell they had been teaching them in that school, she replied:
The last standardized test so we could pass the next standardized test to make the teachers, administration and the school look good.
She added that is why she worked her butt off, sacrificing so her kids could go to private school.
The Ole Dog!
The drop was more significant in districts that had most of their instruction online, compared to districts with more in-person classes.
The COVID-19 pandemic appeared to undo years of improvement for Texas students meeting grade requirements in reading and math, with students who did most of their schooling remotely suffering “significant declines” compared to those who attended in person, according to standardized test results released Monday by the Texas Education Agency.
In districts where fewer than a quarter of classes were held in person, the number of students who met math test expectations dropped by 32 percentage points, and the number of students who met reading expectations dropped by 9 percentage points compared to 2019, the last time the test was administered. In districts with more than three-quarters in-person instruction, the number of students meeting math expectations only dropped by 9 percentage points and those who met reading expectations by 1 percentage point. Students of color and lower-income students saw greater gaps as well, although those gaps were smaller than the one between remote and in-person instruction.
“The impact of the coronavirus on what school means and what school is has been truly profound,” Texas Education Commissioner Mike Morath told reporters Monday. “What we know now with certainty is that the decision in Texas to prioritize in person instruction was critical.”
The STAAR test was optional last year due to coronavirus-related orders, but 87% of students still participated — compared to 96% of students in 2019. Morath said those numbers allow for “fairly effective comparisons.” The STAAR assessment for math and reading is administered from grades 3 to 8.
Since 2012, test results in the state had been steadily improving, but after COVID-19 related disruptions, the percentage of students meeting reading expectations dropped back to 2016 rates and the percentage meeting math expectations dropped to 2013 passing rates. Math test performance saw the most significant drop, from 50% of students meeting their grade level in 2019 to only 35% this year.
