Voices for America's Children
According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), only one-third of American fourth grade students are at or above proficient in reading. Yet state assessments indicate that most American fourth-grade students are above average in reading. This analysis raises the questions about standards of success and what children need to know and do to compete in a global economy. A list of data sources is included. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
