NC School Performance Grades Released: Years of Cuts Have Taken A Toll on Schools

3 Comment(s) | Posted |

Today the Department of Public Instruction released A-F school performance grades on every public school in NC. The results are not great, with 70% of schools scoring a C or worse. After years of education cuts from the General Assembly causing teachers to flee the state, textbook shortages and more, the grades are in some ways not surprising. You pay for what you get. 

Members of the education community have been critical of the scoring system, as testing made up the vast majority of the grade that schools received. 

You can read the executive summary of the performance grades here. or you can view the individual school grades here.

    Cuts in public education are ruining our state and its people. Only the wealthy can afford to send their kids to private schools. Public schools are a must. We pay more and more taxes while the rich enjoy big tax cuts...never an increase! Yet they are the only ones who have money to send their kids to school. We must shore up support for public education. Maybe the only way out of this is to boot the Republicans from office.
