Did We Pass?!
Well, we didn’t exactly fail. According to a Daniele Dreilinger in The Times Picayune, the state has released the annual capstone results and unfortunately, the trend is a downward one with Louisiana dropping from a B to a C. This comes as a bit of a surprise after hearing Superintendent John White say that “schools actually grew on almost all measures.” So what happened? Here’s how department officials have explained it:
“The reporting system did not fully reflect the gains made by the many schools that are making great progress, particularly with low-achieving students, just as it did not grade schools based on expectations of full preparation for the workplace and college.”
