California is a wealthy state, but according to a new study it spends less on K-12 education than much of the rest of the country.
California education officials proposed Wednesday to immediately do away with the standardized reading, math and social science tests used to measure student learning and school performance since the late 1990s.
Results of statewide standardized testing for California school children have been delayed because cell phone pictures of test questions were posted online by students at several schools, including two in San Jose, state officials said.
Despite deep cuts to public education, California’s standardized test scores have gone up for the ninth year in a row.
California students continue making gains in reading and mathematics, but educators agree that more needs to be done to close the achievement gap in schools.
