Which is why more than one-third of US schools were considered “failures” for the 2007-08 academic year under the AYP requirements of the law.
That’s 28% more than in the previous year and Indiana, Nebraska, and New York haven’t reported their data yet.
Nearly 20% of all schools have missed their goals for two or more years and have earned penalties that go beyond the failure tag, an increase of 13%.
Yep. Very successful.
We’re well on our way to the ultimate goal of 100% by 2014.
