2,200 NYC Kids Flunked The 3rd Grade Last Year
So liberals want to take care of you, but they also seem to not care about real education either.
Check it out:
More than 2,200 public school 8- and 9-year-olds flunked third grade last year — the highest number to be held back in six years, new data show.
This means the Department of Education compelled nearly 4.4 percent of last year’s third-grade class to repeat the grade this school year.
By contrast, no other grade in elementary or middle school had more than 2.4 percent of students held back in 2012 — making it the second straight year that third-graders landed in the bottom of the pack.
In 2011, 4.2 percent of the third-grade class was held back a grade.
