Over half of NYC kids can’t handle basic English, math on state tests

While state officials lauded scoring increases, only 47.4 percent of city students in grades 3 to 8 scored at proficient levels in English and 45.6 percent made the grade in math, according to the numbers.

The city’s Asian kids had the highest rate of math and English proficiency yet again, the data show.

In math, 74.4 percent made the grade, followed by white students at 66.6, Hispanics at 33.2 and African Americans at 28.2.

About one-third of Hispanic and just over one-quarter of Black students had math or English proficiency.

If anything holds them back in life, it’s this.

If you can’t handle basic math or English, you can’t do simple things like make change, or read an instruction manual and dilute a cleaning solution.  The very most basic skills for people at the bottom rung of employment.

What have they been taught?

So when they fail because they can’t read or understand basic math (e.g, floor cleaner is 10 oz per gallon of hot water, and the floor scrubber holds 5 gallons, how much floor cleaner needs to be added to the tank) they will know it has nothing to do with the fact they can’t read or understand basic math and everything to do with their skin color.

A rational person would ask “why are they doing this to their children?”

The answer is “they don’t, they do it to other people’s children to create a permanent illiterate, dependent, and aggrieved underclass that will keep them (the Progressives that educated them this way) in power through votes forever.”

  1. “The answer is “they don’t, they do it to other people’s children to create a permanent illiterate, dependent, and aggrieved underclass that will keep them (the Progressives that educated them this way) in power through votes forever.”

    That’s a bingo. The dumbing of America has been brought to you by DemonKKKrats and the letter M for Marxism.

  2. This is why they vote for Democrats that promise them “free” stuff. They can’t do the math to figure out how much it’s going to cost, and can’t parse the English to know when they’re being lied to.

    1. Nor do they have the history to know where this will lead them (hint: back to the plantations, and no, they won’t be the overseers.)

  3. Imma go outonna limb here, but I suspect that one may find that the kids doing better are also the kids with intact homes, parents who keep the kids accountable, and follow other cis-het colonialist tenants of patriarchal “white” culture.

  4. Obvious solution is obvious. Remove all advanced math classes. Then everyone will be equally ignorant. Problem solved. Racist math is eliminated.

  5. The city’s Asian kids had the highest rate of math and English proficiency yet again, the data show.

    And asian immigrants have a reputation, generally deserved in my experience, for really caring about their children’s education. Parental engagement is one of the biggest determining factors in outcome, and it shows.

    Oh, and 46, rounding down a little.

  6. You’ve got to wonder about schools so bad that even the top ethnic group can only manage 75% “at grade”.
    My definition of “at grade” is “meets minimum standards to advance to the next grade”. In school in Holland when I grew up, students graduated “at grade” at essentially 100%, because those that were not at grade were held back and would repeat the grade. And the percentage to whom that happened was pretty low, certainly below 5 percent. Now admittedly Dutch high schools are selective and come in a number of categories, but elementary schools do not. Mine had a mix of blue collar, farmer, and white collar kids. One of my classmates had a single mom (divorced).
