Math graduation tests are simply unacceptable

Email

Let's walk through the numbers. Only 57 percent of Minnesota 11th graders scored high enough on a math test required for high school graduation - or, at least, until now. That means that more than four out of 10 kids one year away from high school graduation aren't considered proficient in math. We're not sure, but what does proficient mean? Able to balance a checkbook? Able to add up a grocery list to get an estimate before hading to the checkout. Able to do your EZ federal tax return?
