Test scores worry state officials
The state's top education official says the latest performance statistics show too many of Indiana's public high schools are failing their students. Some three-quarters are on the bottom two rungs of the state's five-tier ranking system. In Evansville, North is in the next to last, "Academic Watch" catagory. Nearly half are on the lowest level, "Academic Probation," and that includes Central, Harrison, and Reitz. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett considers the results worrisome.
