IREAD-3, one in five Hoosier children not proficient in reading

During the 2020-2021 school year, IREAD-3 results showed that nearly one in five Hoosier students were not proficient in reading.

In order to improve that, the Indiana Department of Education has announced a partnership with 69 schools across the state to start programs this fall that will provide coaching to teachers in research-based instruction in reading or science, technology, engineering, and math subjects (STEM).

Some participating schools were identified as high need and invited to participate based on historical ILEARN assessment scores and student population data.

You will NEVER fix education until you abolish the welfare state. Why would the kid bother when the adults in their life just get a monthly check for doing nothing, regardless? At that point, school is for suckers.
