Students who score at the ACT Benchmark Scores have a 75 percent chance of earning a “C” and a 50 percent chance of earning a “B” in their first related college courses, so this is a rather important statistic to watch.
With the announcement of the departure of Stu Silberman from the Fayette County superintendent’s position, I was asked to take a look at the school district’s ACT performance.
This shows what I found, which quite frankly was an unpleasant surprise.
The least damage was in English, where the percentage of students making the cut only dropped by 0.4 point. But, the drop was a full point for reading, and it was two points or more for the critical subjects of math and science.
Sort of makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
