Wisconsin released its latest batch of standardized test scores on Wednesday, and challenges persist, including in Milwaukee.
Last year marked the first time the state administered the Badger exam, which was designed to test Wisconsin’s new academic standards.
When it came to students in grades three through eight, 51 percent tested proficient or better in English.
In math, 44 percent were proficient or better.
The results in Milwaukee Public Schools were at least 20 points lower, yet key players see potential in those numbers.
