Concerns about Education

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction just released results from the annual Wisconsin Student Assessment. The data showed a statewide decline in standardized test scores with roughly 40 percent of students being proficient or advanced in English and math. These areas declined a percentage point from the previous year.

The results are a cause for concern for parents, educators and taxpayers. While standardized tests don’t reflect everything that’s happening in the classroom, these scores reveal a disturbing decline.

Wisconsin students deserve an excellent education no matter where they attend school. With the repeated increases in funding for K-12 education, taxpayers deserve to know why we’re not seeing better results.
