Idaho Public Schools Rank Lower Than Much of the U.S.
Considering that our children will someday be (debatably) responsible adults, there needs to be a system in place to assist in this process. A way for younglings to learn what will be necessary in life to complete required tasks and positively contribute to society. If only there were a strategy in place to make that happen.
What would such an important institution cost? Does it seem right that moppets of people with money have educational opportunities and wee baerns of a lower income bracket do not? Is there a place that is available to younger personages who need to learn, but cannot pay for private lessons?
Maybe there is such a place. Rumor has it that the government has set up a place for offspring to acquire the knowledge needed to succeed in undertakings of a life and career nature. Where can such a place be found? School, you say? Hmmm.
How Do Idaho Public Schools Rank Compared to Other States?
Each state of the union is separately responsible for its schools. What value states put on their progeny and their future can be seen directly in how well the schools are supported and perform.
Considering Idaho spends the least out of all the states and the District of Columbia for their schools, the fact that overall ranking gets us up to 38th is quite an accomplishment. Idaho does not have the highest dropout rate or the lowest math scores. Not that those are the only parameters for gauging how a school performs, but they are 2 major factors that contribute to a productive future for our children.
Still, there’s plenty of room for improvement. Idaho doesn’t fail, but it doesn’t get an ‘A’ either. This is a solid ‘C’. Hooray for mediocrity.
