Interim State Superintendent Jack Smith last week made public results of the standardized tests known as PARCC or the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. These are the standardized testing companion to the Common Core curriculum standards that Maryland public schools are using to prepare students for college and careers.
Today, the state board is releasing a more detailed report on the PARCC test scores filling out the picture it outlined last week. Today’s scores will offer a glimpse of how each school and jurisdiction performed.
Our guests are Bill Reinhardt, a spokesman for the Maryland State Board of Education; Cheryl Bost, a former Baltimore County school teacher, and vice president of the Maryland State Education Association; and Elizabeth Ysla Leight, president of the Maryland PTA.
