Consider the facts:
- More than 30% of our 8th grade Asian Pacific students are scoring below the basic level in reading and math.*
- When compared to national levels, 10-15% more of MN’s Asian Pacific students are failing to meet the basic level.*
- While Minnesota led the nation in ACT scores in 2011, only 34% of Asian Pacific students scored as college ready in at least three subjects areas.
*on the National Assessment of Educational Progress test
Are we really ensuring that no child is left behind?
