Washington Post: Failing grades double and triple — some rising sixfold — amid pandemic learning

Washington Post: Failing grades double and triple — some rising sixfold — amid pandemic learning. “Failure rates in math and English jumped as much as sixfold for some of the most vulnerable students in Maryland’s largest school system, according to data released as the pandemic’s toll becomes increasingly visible in schools across the country. In but one stark example, more than 36 percent of ninth-graders from low-income families failed the first marking period in English. That compares with fewer than 6 percent last year, when the same students took English in eighth grade.”
