U.S. 12th graders’ math scores fall, reading stalls: Education Dept

U.S. 12th graders’ average mathematics score in 2015 was lower than two years before, and reading performance had stagnated, the Education Department said in releasing the “nation’s report card” on Wednesday.

The data also showed a higher percentage of high school seniors failed to reach basic levels in the two subjects, while the lowest-performing students had done worse. [Reuters]
