Pennsylvania Releases List of Struggling Schools

December 13, 2018

Avi Wolfman-Arent reports for WITF that Pennsylvania education officials have released a list of nearly 300 struggling schools, which under ESSA “will have to develop ‘improvement plans’ with the direction of state advisors.” But unlike in previous years, the state is focusing “less on schools with low overall test scores and included schools where certain subgroups of students failed to meet academic benchmarks.”
