“For every child and for every family, every school year matters as an opportunity to develop knowledge, skills, and mindsets that students need to thrive. Flat results are unacceptable.
“As we mark the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock Nine this week, these scores are evidence that we are still giving some students less than they deserve.
“California cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results for our students. We must invest more and design learning environments and schools that individualize to meet the unique needs of students so that every child has the support and resources she needs to succeed,” said Jonathan Klein, co-founder and CEO of GO Public Schools.
