Santa Fe – In an early journal article release, Education Next (Vol.10, No. 4) New Mexico ranked fifth nationally for the strength of math proficiency standards in a state-to-state comparison of where states have set the bar for student proficiency.
“State standards rising in reading but not in math,” investigates Education Secretary Arne Duncan’s claims that No Child Left Behind incentivized states to set performance standards low to improve test scores and to avoid sanctions associated with low-performing schools.
“I am proud that New Mexico has insisted on setting the bar high and holding our students to high standards. This will make our transition to common internationally bench
marked standards and assessments much smoother. When students score proficient in New Mexico, we know that they will be nationally and internationally competitive,” said New Mexico Education Secretary Veronica C. García.
