Governor Statement on Education Progress

Statement

Date:
Location: Honolulu, HI

The State Department of Education (DOE) today announced that public school students in every grade increased their scores in both reading and math in the 2012 Hawai'i State Assessment. The gains helped 17 more DOE schools achieve Adequate Yearly Progress under the No Child Left Behind law, compared to last year.

Governor Neil Abercrombie released the following statement:

"The rise in scores is a testament to the commitment and professionalism of school teachers, members of the Board of Education and the Department of Education. This is a collaborative effort in fulfilling the path towards student achievement.

"We asked for the opportunity to demonstrate what could be done. These scores provide an excellent snapshot of the positive results taking place in the classroom."
