Test Score Spin
The JT's headline that reads "Unified students show gains in math scores" is not a lie. But it hardly conveys the real story. Unified students continue to lag behind their peers in the state by a wide margin. Even more disturbing is that the test results indicate that the longer you stay in Unified, the less likely you are to be proficient or advanced in math or English. Maybe our truants are smarter than we think.
