NAEP results out, city kids either improving or stagnant

Scores on the National Assessment of Education Progress tests are out, and New York City kids did great! Or not. Let's see what folks have to say about the results of the test considered "the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas."

"City Students Stalled on National Education Tests," from the Sun: "Scores on a math test for fourth-graders went up, but others are statistically flat since 2005."

"New York City Public School Students Make Gains on 2007 NAEP tests," a DOE press release: "New York City students made impressive gains on the 2007 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) tests, with particularly significant progress achieved by 4th graders in mathematics compared to their peers in other cities and by Black 4th-grade students in both reading and math."
Who's right? You be the judge. Check out the scores in math and English for yourself.
