Statement by State Education Board Member David Freitas on ISTEP scores


2nd District State Board of Education Member Dr. David Freitas:

"The ISTEP+ student achievement scores released today affirm the hard work of students, teachers, parents, school staff, and our educational leaders. In fact, I'm particularly proud to note that the percentage of students passing both the Mathematics and English/Language Arts assessments are at an all-time high.

These outcomes are another indicator of the success of educational reforms implemented over the past several years in Indiana. For example, in addition to these remarkable ISTEP+ scores, the percentage of third grade students who can now read at grade level is at an all-time high and our high school graduation rates continue to move upward. This momentum will continue as we all collaborate in enhancing the quality of education we offer to all Hoosier learners."
