Only in Print: Manchester area schools miss U.S. testing targets
MANCHESTER - Only one of Manchester's 21 public schools achieved 'adequate yearly progress'' in math and none did in reading under requirements of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, according to results released last week.
City schools struggled the most in meeting targets for those students with educational disabilities. And Beech Street School, the city's worst performer, failed to hit targets for the whole school as well as for all 14 subgroups of test takers. Subgroups categorize students by race, ethnicity, educational disability, English language proficiency and economic difficulties.
