Report sheds light on disturbing trends in education
from By Bambi Majumdar
From July 21:
A recent report by Child Trends shows a rather disturbing trend in K-12 education. Data indicates only 18 percent of African-American and 21 percent of Hispanic fourth-grade students can be deemed "proficient" in reading. Experts think the shortcomings in our education system have disproportionately impacted them, and as a result so many of our young people are failing to achieve their potential. While minority students are definitely affected, the numbers aren't encouraging for others either.
