Report Shows Cali Students Rank Almost Last On State Tests
California doesn’t do too well on state tests, according to a report by the National Assessment of Educational Progress.
The state ranks 45 out of 50 nationally, based on results from students from grades 4 through 8 who rank proficient or better in reading and math.
On average, 28 percent of students in California rank at or above proficient, according to the nation’s report card. Only West Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and New Mexico rank below the Golden State.
But at least Cali isn’t New Mexico, which ranks last.
