Year by year, Vermont students' reading and math scores continue to decline, despite our low student-teacher ratio and high school spending. What's going on?
"The NAEP is administered every two years to fourth graders and eighth graders across the nation in math and reading. The 2019 results show Vermont students still performing above the national average in eighth grade reading and math and fourth grade reading. However, fourth grade math fell below the national average.
Here are the scores on a 500-point scale, compared to 2017:
- Eighth grade reading: 268, down from 273
- Eighth grade math: 287, down from 288
- Fourth grade reading: 222, down from 226
- Fourth grade math: 239, down from 241."
