Just 45 percent of the 2,396 fifth-graders who enrolled in Texas schools after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita passed the math portion of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, according to the Texas Education Agency.
These schools are failing!(/sarcasm)

put in the wrong grade after arriving in Texas with no records.
How stupid do you have to be not to know what grade you are taking?

No doubt the low grades are a result of the trauma experienced from the hurricane. The solution us to send more money. /sarcasm

What a damning account of New Orleans schools. I suspect if the evacuees are able to acclimate to Texas, they will fare better in life. That's assuming that they do want to work hard and do well in their new place.
A better comparison would be to our inner city schools.
Anyone have this data?

If you live nine feet below sea level and the water is over your roof, how long will you live in Houston?
Louisiana public schools are horrible. If you live in a great school district, you might be able to send your kid all the way until third grade.
Then you have to pony up for private school. That's the way it is.

As Dobbs said today all schools are failing because of the illegals kids who are dropping out, I say kick them out.
But Texas got a double whammy with the illegals kids and the Katrina kids.
The only ones suffering are OUR Children.
