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