News Alert: NYC Test Scores Rise

Although there is still much work to be done with proficiency levels below 40 percent, new data reveals New York City students in grades 3-8 made gains in math and reading over a yearlong time period.

Perhaps the most telling news is that the Success Charter School Academy network, which was nearly blocked from expanding when Mayor Bill de Blasio took office, had 94 percent of its students pass math and 64 percent of its students pass English exams, far exceeding New York City performance as a whole.

Head over to the Media Bullpen, the destination for the latest news and commentary in education reform, to find out more about New York City proficiency rates and the Wall Street Journal’s reporting on the issue.
