From GoLocalProv.com by Paul J. Spetrini, GoLocalProv News Editor:
Over the past five years, the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE) has increased its emphasis on improving test scores in the annual New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP), so much so that beginning next year students will have to show that they are at least “partially proficient” in both the math and reading portions of the exam to graduate with their classmates.
But during that same time, the city of Providence has made little to no statistical improvement in either category and just as many students in the district stand at risk of failing to meet the requirements today as they would have had there been similar requirements to earn a diploma during the 2008-2009 school year.
