Baltimore has 23 schools where no student is proficient in math, and no students in the entire city who test at a distinguished level, Standing For Freedom reported Wednesday.
“Exactly 2,000 students, in total, took the state math test at these schools. Not one could do math at grade level,” Fox 45 said back in February. In 20 additional schools, each only had one or two students who tested proficient in mathematics.
Baltimore’s City Schools were sued in 2022 by resident Jovani Patterson, who argued the district was not educating students, and therefore was misusing taxpayer funds. After learning about the test results, Patterson told Baltimore residents to “take your kids out of these schools.” (LEARN MORE: School To Pay $80,000 For Silencing Christians)
It’s Not Just High School Failures
Some 93% of 3rd through 8th grade students also failed to score any type of mathematic proficiency. “It just sounds like these schools, now, have turned into essentially babysitters with no accountability. This is the future of our city. We’ve got to change this,” Patterson continued.
“These kids can’t do math. You’re not preparing them to buy groceries. You’re not preparing them to do accounting, to count their own money. You’re not preparing them to read contracts and negotiate salaries.” (LEARN MORE: Chinese Communist Party Targets American Schools Near Military Bases)
The Public Education System Is Failing Our Children. Hold Them Accountable.
“I think the leadership if it’s not working, it’s not working. If you’re not getting the results, you’re not getting the results. And any time you’re not getting results, it starts with the leadership,” Baltimore parent Desmond Stinnie said.
