Not One Student Proficient In Math In 10 Minneapolis, St. Paul Public Schools


Recommended Posts

Daily Caller

At least 10 elementary and high schools in the Minneapolis Public School District and St. Paul Public School District in Minnesota, did not have a single student meet grade level expectations in math during the 2021-2022 school year, according to a Wednesday report by the Center of the American Experiment, an organization focused on state public policy.

State wide, 19 school districts did not have one student test proficient in math on the 2022 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment, a standardized test used to determine what students have learned, according to a Center of the American Experiment report. Of elementary schools in the Minneapolis and St. Paul school districts, seven did not have a single student meeting grade level expectations in math.

“As of the start of the 2022 school year, fewer than half of Minnesota students statewide are proficient in math (44.6 percent), and just under 50 percent can’t read at grade level,” Catrin Wigfall, the author of the report, wrote. “On national assessments, Minnesota reading and math scores are the lowest they have been in 30 years.”:snip:

America’s Public Schools Are a Disaster

A report recently found that there are 53 public schools in Illinois where not a single student can do math at grade level. That report made international news, and my colleague Catrin Wigfall wondered whether there could possibly be any such low-achieving schools in Minnesota.

So she investigated. It turns out that there are 19 public schools in Minnesota, 11 of them public charter schools, where not a single student can do math at grade level. Per-pupil spending at these schools runs as high as $32,000 annually. Money has nothing to do with it.

Statewide, only 45% of public school students can do math at grade level, and only around 50% can read at grade level. By the time they get to the 11th grade, only 36% of Minnesota youths can do math at grade level.
