Nationally, 12th graders reading scores were up slightly from 2005 but lower than they were in 1992, according to results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress released today. And the achievement gap between white and Latino students hasn't changed much since 1992.
Scores in math are up since 2005, though the achievement gap between white and Latino students remains about the same.
Though the results are for the nation as a whole, they're not available by state (except for 11 pilot states, not including Utah). To see the full report go here.
