Mississippi Unveils Plan To Boost Test Scores

Chicot Memorial

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Mississippi Department of Education on Friday released a plan for public comment that seeks to have 70 percent of all students perform proficiently on standardized tests to comply with new federal legislation replacing the No Child Left Behind Act. The plan says the state will provide extra money to roughly 50 low-performing schools; they must spend the cash on improvement methods demonstrated to work. The board will accept comments through July 16th then submit the plan for Governor Phil Bryant’s review before sending it to federal officials in September.
