by Chester E. Finn Jr.via EducationNext
Wednesday, December 4, 2019

When the New York City Council moved the other day to require every one of the city’s thirty-two community school districts to develop a school desegregation plan, it was advancing a major initiative by Mayor Bill de Blasio, his schools chancellor Richard Carranza, and a sprawling advisory panel, all of them committed to rooting out every form of selectivity and “disparate impact” in the offerings of the country’s biggest public school system.

PISA 2018: Leaning Into The Economic Headwinds

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Tuesday, December 3, 2019

Another week, another round of test scores, this time the international variety. The latest results from the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) are out, and they largely track the findings from the 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress. Meaning: American scores are mostly flat, with some widening of the gaps between our high and low performers in reading and math because the higher achieving students are making progress while their peers are standing still.

Priors And Prejudice

Wednesday, December 4, 2019

When I was in twelfth grade (in Canada, we called it Grade 12), one of the main novels we studied was Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I read it once because I was supposed to, twice to be able to answer questions on exams, and the third time because I loved it.

A ‘Lost Decade’ For Academic Progress? NAEP Scores Remain Flat Amid Signs Of A Widening Gap Between Highest And Lowest Performers

quoting Michael J. Petrillivia The 74 Million
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Test scores released Tuesday for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) continued a decade-long trend of stasis, with small improvements measured only for performance in eighth-grade reading. While states with disparate academic approaches have made some strides over the past few years — notably Florida and California — national averages have varied only slightly, despite billions of dollars invested to improve performance at the national, state, and local levels.

NAEP 2017: America's "Lost Decade" Of Educational Progress

by Michael J. Petrillivia Flypaper (Fordham Education Blog)
Tuesday, April 10, 2018

As feared, the new results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress show that national trends are mostly flat. Coming on the heels of some modest declines in 2015, the 2017 scores amount to more bleak news. It’s now been almost a decade since we’ve seen strong growth in either reading or math, with the slight exception of eighth grade reading. There’s no way to sugarcoat these scores; they are extremely disappointing.
