We got some interesting attention from a real source of expertise on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) – none other than the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) itself!
In case you missed our 5-part blog series on how Florida and Kentucky compare on the NAEP Grade 4 reading assessments over time, here are the links:
This blog series shows that any way you slice the NAEP Grade 4 reading picture, it looks like school choice rich Florida has moved from notably behind to well ahead of the pack. That most definitely includes choice rich Florida moving ahead of choice poor Kentucky. And, Florida has done this despite higher poverty and minority levels and notably lower per pupil funding.
We are pleased that NAGB finds value in our blogs. That is something our legislators need to consider – NOW.
