Teachers’ Union Seeks More Funding as Pre-Pandemic Nation’s Report Card Reveals More Student Failure

National teachers’ unions are campaigning for yet more public school funding as results of the assessment known as the Nation’s Report Card, administered in 2019 – prior to the pandemic – found already struggling students from disadvantaged backgrounds have declined further in both reading and math.

Results of the 2019 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which tested grades 4, 8, and 12, showed that just about one in three U.S. 12th graders read proficiently and less than one in four are proficient in math.

Moreover, already struggling students, in the 25th percentile or lower – many of whom come from low-income families – declined even further in both reading and math, compared to four years ago.
