Speaking out! Faith, Light, Salt

Let the facts always come forth to speak for themselves, we often say.  Some are ridiculing the Texas educational system without stating their sources.  Truth will set us free, as Jesus Christ said.  Seems this can apply in the concrete world as well!

In an open letter to Ann Duncan, Secretary of  Education,  TEA chief Robert Scott notes the class of 2011
“posted a record-high math score on the ACT college entrance exam. The Texas average math score was 21.5 and was higher than the national average of 21.1.
ACT scores from 2007 to 2011 showed increases in (math, science, English,  language arts and social studies).”

The Lone Star State graduates 73 percent of its high school students, compared to just 56 percent in Chicago —
the school district Duncan oversaw before joining the Obama
administration.
