STAAR scores, new COVID strain

STAAR scores, new COVID strain

STAAR scores show continued struggles in math, reading Texas public student scores in standardized testing continue to improve since the pandemic, but more than half of those taking the test still struggle with math and just under half read below grade-level, the Texas Tribune reported. Students in grades three through eight took the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness tests in math and reading last spring. The results were released last week by the Texas Education Agency.

The road less traveled

Wyoming is the place where the traditional Texans still live. The people who live “out there,” much like the ones near Van Horn or Fort Davis. A place where people (except in Jackson Hole) live in small towns, if any, have miles between them and anyone else, do not ask much from the government except for it to leave them alone, and revel in what they consider freedom.
