Voucher Kids Perform Poorly - Vos Blames Public Schools

The lead story in today's JT is how the first round of testing on 60 out of 63 voucher school kids showed they performed poorly compared to RUSD students...by a lot.

Unified students scored 69.2 in reading and 61.5 in math - compared to 55.7 and 50.8 for school choice students. Statewide, public school kids scored 81.9 and 78. Wow, that's bad.

Unified School Superintendent, Ann Laing said the scores spoke for themselves - at a cost of $1.5 million tax payer dollars.

Little Lord Pops-the-Corn, Robin Vos said:
"What these test results prove is that Unified failed them.”
Hmmmm. So Unified failed them? The problem is that nowhere in the article does it say that these kids attended Unified - EVER.

It's not a requirement to get a voucher.
