Despite Test Gains, Only A Third Of D.C. Students Rated “College And Career Ready”

About a third of public school students in the District are considered “college and career ready” in math and English, according to test scores released Thursday that showed slight gains in both subjects, particularly in the traditional public schools.

D.C. Public Schools, which educates a little more than half of the District’s 90,000 public schoolchildren, surpassed the performance of charter schools in English language arts and math by small margins. The charter schools also made gains, now boasting 10 straight years of rising scores.
