Part Seven of Many
Here we look at the math targets that Michelle Rhee promised DCPS students would reach on the NAEP TUDA from 2007 to 2013. Let’s see how many goals were actually achieved.
First, 8th grade math:
As you can see, Rhee promised that the DCPS average scale score in math for 8th graders would be 256 in 2011 and would be 262 in 2013. Neither goal was reached, because the scores were only 255 in 2011 and 260 in 2013. I drew brown diamonds to indicate NOT reaching the promised goals.
Now let’s look at 4th grade math:
So for these four goals, Rhee & Henderson & company are zero for four.
Which means that the running total, so far, is one and a half out of fourteen, which is about 11% success.
Can someone remind me why Kaya Henderson still has a job?
The saga so far:

Once again, let me credit my colleague Erich Martel for coming up with the idea of going back to the original promises and seeing if they were kept or not, and sharing his findings with me. These calculations are generally my own, so if you find any mistakes, don’t blame him. Blame me.
