Good news, bad news for La. schools

The Louisiana Department of Education released the 2012 spring testing results for the LEAP, iLEAP, and GEE during a press conference this afternoon.

For state/district rankings based on percent of students at Basic & Above, Jeff Davis ranked 10, Calcasieu Parish ranked 17 and Beauregard ranked 20.

State Superintendent John White said the board continues to see year after year growth.

The greatest subject growth for the 2012 year was in Math and Science. White also said eighth grade scores increased while sixth grade scores declined.

48 of 71 districts showed gains in the percentage of students scoring basic and above between 2011 and 2012.

As board officials praised the state's education growth, they also stressed the challenges in the Louisiana education system.

Out of 100 students who enter high school together as freshman, only 70 students will graduate from high school in four years, 49 will enter college within one year and fewer than 19 will finish their degree within six years.
