Test results up overall; voucher schools flat

Posted: Updated:

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - State education officials say the number of Louisiana public school students performing at grade level nudged up from 68 percent to 69 percent in the latest round of standardized test scores.

Education Superintendent John White said more than half the state's districts saw improvement overall.

White said charter schools improvement was 2 percent better than that of traditional schools. There was little change in performance among students attending private schools with state-funded vouchers.

White said the voucher schools' performance was held down by a few poorly performing schools. He listed seven private schools in the New Orleans area that will no longer be allowed to accept new voucher students. About 140 new voucher students who had planned to attend those schools will be routed to other schools.
