Good programs have been adopted by the school system, but the staff seem to be having great difficulty in implementing them effectively. After 3 years of implementing Walk to Read, students haven't made gains that I would have expected as a teacher with inner city experience.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
