The One Data Chart Left Out Of The State School Performance Grade Report

Last year when DPI released the school performance grades for the state included in the report was a data table that showed a correlation between poverty levels and school letter grades received.

Here’s a table detailing the link between these grades and poverty levels from 2015–16 Performance and Growth of North Carolina Public Schools Executive Summary, NC DPI.

This year’s report did not include the “Grades by School Poverty Percentage” bar graph, but the good people at the Public School Forum did the work for us.

Sure does look like poverty levels still have a lot to do with school performance grades. Makes one wonder why DPI’s budget was cut and those support positions were eliminated in DPI to help high-poverty LEA’s.
