Yes, But Is That Good Enough?

The Wichita Eagle offers a rosy piece on District 259:

Wichita elementary and middle schools continued to show far more improvements than setbacks in state scores in 2005. The percentage of elementary school students scoring passing grades — proficient or above — in reading increased 22.6 percent over 2004, according to The Eagle’s calculation of Kansas State Department of Education data.

On the other hand, lots of students are still scoring “unsatisfactory” or “basic,” which is to say, not up to grade level.,

7th grade math: 44.3 percent
10th grade math: 66 percent
5th grade reading: 29.6 percent
11th grade reading: 43.7 percent
