18 Percent of Albuquerque Public Schools are Failing

 

"The New Mexico Public Education Department has just released grades for public schools based on its new A - F program – and many New Mexico schools didn’t fare well.

The rankings show 73 of the state’s 831 schools got A’s – while 89  received F’s.

APS superintendent Winston Brooks issued a statement Tuesday in reaction to the grading system, which he called “an interesting tool by which some may evaluate individual schools.”

After taking a closer look at the report, it appears that Albuquerque Public Schools accounted for 34 percent of failing schools.  166 Albuquerque Public Schools  were graded, 30 of them received failing grades.  That is an 18% failure rate.  In light of the fact that quite a few of them also received Ds, it seems to me that there should me a more comprehensive look at APS.  It is time to get to the root cause of this matter.

The face of education is really changing, someday technology will take over and help support the teachers and students to learn better, hope it happens soon.

Good Morning C Lloyd, this is sad news about the Albuquerque Public Schools.  The results ned to be taken very seriousely by the public and by school administrators.

Lloyd,

This sounds like a very serious and deep rooted issue and I glad to see you are making it known. Folks in New Mexico need to tell their elected officials schools are very important and the current status is not acceptable. Action needs to be taken right away. I feel sorry for the folks living in New Mexico as it it truly a great place.
