We may know that our school system is great, and generally successful students graduate every year…but it may not be so for all public schools in Texas. We took a look at a WalletHub comparison study – state by state:
The good – Texas is about average in Math Test Scores at number 24 among the 50 states and District of Columbia.
In Median ACT Scores Texas was 25th.
In Pupil-Teacher Ratio Texas was 29th.
In the % of certified K-12 teachers, Texas was 28th.
The not so good – Texas fell way down the ladder in Reading Test Scores, down to 43rd.
In Median SAT Scores Texas fell to 48th.
Higher on the list…but bad – Texas is 5th in dropout rates.
In Bullying Incidence Rate, Texas is 16th of all states.
