The CRCT is designed to measure how well students acquire the skills and knowledge described in the Georgia Performance Standards. First grade students are tested on Reading, Language Arts, and Mathematics, while Second grade through Fifth grade students are tested on Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Science.
2010 CRCT statistics for three undisclosed inner city schools located within the heart of Zone 4 are as follows:
School One: Math - 69%; Science - 69%; Social Science - 65%; Reading - 83%; Language Arts - 81%
School Two: Math - 58%; Science - 58%; Social Science - 53%; Reading - 79%; Language Arts - 74%
School Three: Math - 54%; Science - 52%; Social Science - 37%; Reading - 73%; Language Arts - 75%
From the above research, it can be concluded that educational assistance is needed primarily in Mathematics, Science and Social Science; for each school has FAILING percentages.
We, the undersigned, call on the City of Atlanta and the State of Georgia to provide funds needed to provide educational assistance (tutorial services) to improve the quality of education in the inner city of Atlanta (Zone 4).
Matriculation through a tutorial program will increase CRCT scores, enhancing our current state of education.
