Thank Goodness for Mississippi
Star NAEP Showing Follows a Long Commitment

4th Grade NAEP Reading, Percentage Scoring At or Above Proficient in Mississippi. MS18% (2005) 32% (2019); SREB 28% 2005, 32% (2019); US 30% 2005, 34% 2019)

“Thank goodness for Mississippi.”

It used to be that this was something you heard from people who were grateful that Mississippi kept their own states from the dubious honor of last place in education rankings. Those folks may not have noticed that, since 2005, Mississippi has been making steady gains.

And now, after Mississippi offered a rare bright spot on the Nation’s Report Card earlier this month, we have a new reason to be thankful for Mississippi: We can learn from their success.

Real progress takes time.

FALs Yield High Dividends

Debbie Blankenship

Jeanne Glover, math specialist at the Jonesboro Public Schools district in Jonesboro, Arkansas, was trained in the Mathematics Design Collaborative during the 2013-14 school year with SREB math consultant Amanda Merritt. Glover believes the MDC tools fit well with her K-12 mathematics vision for the district.

So Debbie Blankenship, math teacher at Douglas MacArthur Junior High School, joined two other district teachers for initial MDC training in May 2014.
