State education office deems 60 as 'high performing'
Hopefully this information of good performing Title I Schools compared with
those not performing well will give some insight into the underlying factors or
concerns that might give rise to issues that need to be addressed by low-income
schools. Neither Salt Lake City, Jordan, Davis, Ogden, Weber Counties where the
bulk of low-incomes schools exist seems to have been able to break into the well
performing category so there may be much more that needs to be done. However,
if there is a crack in the low-income school barrier, that's a big start
One more piece of evidence that out public schools in Utah are flourishing not
floundering like the press and far right want us to believe.Thank
you teachers of Utah!
If Utah can achieve even limited success given how little the State Legislature
appropriates for its public schools, (far less than ANY other state), just
imagine what could be accomplished with even an average level of funding.
