On the ACT, Chicago’s public school teachers did worse than Illinois’s high school students
The Daily Caller reports:
In Illinois, all high school juniors and seniors are required to take the ACT test, whether they plan to attend college or not. Public school teachers in Chicago who took the test when they were in high school averaged a score of 19 out of a possible 36 — which is worse than the average median score for all students nationwide.
In fact, Illinois students beat the teachers, scoring a 21 on average, though Chicago-area students only scored in the 17-18 range.
This is not a surprise to me., because I already knew that education majors had the lowest average SAT scores of any college major.
