Public Education

The Washington Times:

Hispanic youngsters are being shortchanged by the nation's public schools...

The achievement levels are upsetting. Only 14 percent of Latino fourth graders reach proficient or advanced levels while 57 percent have not been taught to the basic level.

Only 9 percent of the Latino 8th graders reach the proficient level in math while 60 percent perform below basic levels.
