Arrow OH Hondo: 13 Baltimore City High Schools, zero students proficient in math - 07-30-2019, 03:19 PM

Once again the joys of a liberal utopia.
Just remember. Democrats and liberals have your best interests in mind.

I am sure Kid and a few others can lavish us with excuses.
Perhaps the teachers are white and racist.

13 Baltimore City High Schools, zero students proficient in math

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - An alarming discovery coming out of City Schools. Project Baltimore analyzed 2017 state testing data and found one-third of High Schools in Baltimore, last year, had zero students proficient in math.

But that’s not all we found. In the midst of that troubling number, there are some bright spots.

Most mornings, at Baltimore Collegiate School for Boys, start the same way – with students chanting the school’s motto in the gym.

“There’s an urgency about the work we’re doing,” said Jack Pannell, the school’s founder.

That urgency was born out of need.

“Nine out of ten black boys in Baltimore City are not reading at grade level,” added Pannell.

That grim statistic, lead Pannell to open his north Baltimore school three years ago. As the name implies, in these halls, there are no girls.

“They tend to stay very focused on their studies,” he stated, with a smile.

The charter school also has no entrance exams. What it does have is a school day extended by one hour, a teaching staff that is 60 percent male and shorter class periods. All of it tailored to how boys learn.

“We designed this school to make a fundamental difference in the lives of mostly black and brown boys in the city,” said Pannell.

That design appears to be working. Since 2015, the number of Baltimore Collegiate’s boys who scored proficient in state math tests spiked by 60 percent. In 2016, nine percent of students were proficient. This year, 14.4 percent were proficient.

“No,” replied Pannell, when asked if he was happy with the results. “I mean, we can do better.”

Baltimore City Schools lays out corrective steps in response to #ProjectBaltimore investigations. @FOXBaltimore https://t.co/jTex2OGu9l

— Chris Papst (@chrispapst) October 27, 2017



But Project Baltimore discovered as this school’s making process, many other city schools seem to be going nowhere.

Project Baltimore analyzed 2017 state test scores released this fall. We paged through 16,000 lines of data and uncovered this: Of Baltimore City’s 39 High Schools, 13 had zero students proficient in math.

Digging further, we found another six high schools where one percent tested proficient. Add it up – in half the high schools in Baltimore City, 3804 students took the state test, 14 were proficient in math.

Zero students proficient in Math:

Achievement Academy
Carver Vocational-Technical High
Coppin Academy
Excel Acadamy @ Francis M. Wood High
Forest Park High
Frederick Douglass High
Independence School Local 1
Knowledge and Success Academy
New Era Academy
New Hope Academy
Northwestern High
Patterson High
The Reach! Partnership School
High Schools with 1% math proficiency:
Ben Franklin H.S. at Masonville Cove
ConneXions: Community Based Arts School
Digital Harbor High School
Edmondson-Westside High
Renaissance Academy
Vivien T. Thomas Medical Arts Academy

With these eye-opening results, Project Baltimore reached to North Avenue. But no one inside the building would sit down to answer our questions. Instead, we got a statement. Concerning our investigation, it read, “These results underscore the urgency of the work we are now pursuing. We must do more to meet the needs of all our students.”

That work, according to the statement, involves a new math curriculum started this year, enhanced teacher development and expanded partnerships to provide opportunities for students.

The statement concludes, “There is no simple answer that will close the achievement gap for Baltimore’s students. Though we all want to see results quickly, the work is hard and will take time.”

At Pannell’s school, results took just two years. With 440 students, his school is now at capacity. Another 300 are on the waiting list.

“We believe we can change the narrative. We believe we can change history. We believe we can change the status quo if we keep doing what we’re doing,” said Pannell.


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

As a "brown boy" I sure as hell am glad I didn't go to their school.

And that's the best they have?

Take the girls away? Shorter classes? Longer day?

Yeah, that's because us brown people can't fight our primal urges and have short attention spans.

That's called institutionalized racism sponsored by liberal education theory.


When my daughter was in middle school they took all the brown students into a room and told them they would fail, drop out, get pregnant, do drugs, never go to college....etc.

This was the Principal, Vice Principal, and Counselor.

Wow. Yup. True.

She came home crying.

Oh, by the way, this was in a very well regarded school.

If they can have their way, the state test for math will suddenly become much easier, and the scores will rise rapidly.

Lower bar to below sea level?
They would never do that.

0+0=0 might actually be deemed as being to challenging and racist.

Would you just look at that big, beautiful piece of glass PDT put up over Baltimore!

Tried to do it to pelosi and her district too but she's white so it just slipped right on past.

What do you expect? They teach math differently now. Parents don't understand the new method. How can they help their kids at home when COMMON CORE makes no sense to them? This can be solved with a simple equation. Too bad everyone sucks at math.

I hope no one here is working under the delusion that the d'rat party thinks this is a bad thing?
This is manna from Heaven for them. You can't build a massive stable of future welfare recipients/voters if kids are learning how to read and do basic math in high school.
This is the NEA and the d'rat party's crowning achievement!

Quoted just to make sure that anyone that has you on ignore can read it.

I'd bet it all that 9 out of 10 teenagers in Baltimore know 5 twenties make a bill, 28 grams make an ounce, 4 ounces make a quarter pound, 448 grams make a pound, 1000 grams make a bird, and when to press playing dice.

Got a royal liberal douche at work who I eat lunch with occasionally. Usually he pretended to be a moderate liberal, but a few days ago, he showed his true self.

Anyways, I joked you can't win with idiots like Bernie anywhere near your ticket. I mean, I even said I like the gal from Hawaii, Gabby T.

He says, what's so stupid about Bernie. I said other than being a socialist, nothing. He says that free college is a great thing. I said, who the hell made colleges unaffordable? In IL, the liberals run the state run colleges, and I'm sure it's the same in most states. Why did these liberal institutions of higher learning keep jacking up the price of college for the families of IL?

Of course, his answer was they are not run by liberals. Brilliant, he is not.

I said, you control the universities, you set the prices, you can lower them anytime you want. But, these liberals are more interested in making money, and over paying for the hired hands.

So, this is what you get. And if you make college free we all pay. He said he is happy paying taxes. I sad great, because if anyone and everyone can go to college, then Illinois will just double the price of admission... I mean, after all they just send a bill in for each student. So, tuition will be $50K a year then, which means we'll have to raise taxes to pay for the inflated college prices, once again.

Still no Hondo.

One has to wonder how many other schools and school systems produce this result across the nation?
