(Bravo to John R. Butcher and his CrankyBlog for all his hard work crunching the latest SOL Scores! Check back later for more news and analysis of what City of Richmond School Board and RPS Superintendent Dana Bedden intend to do to combat these scores.) Here is a first look at the 2014 test scores by school. I’ve included a five year period to provide some context for the effect of the new math test in 2012 and the new reading test in 2013, both of which reduced the statewide average scores and torpedoed the Richmond scores. The tables are sorted by decreasing 2014 scores.
First, reading. (Elementary, then middle, then high schools.)
