Georgia students are improving in eighth grade math and reading, and holding steady in fourth grade math, according to results from the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) report.

The results were released yesterday by State School Superintendent Richard Woods, who added that despite the increases “there’s more work to be done.”

“I’m pleased to see Georgia’s students making gains in eighth-grade reading and math,” Woods said. “There is more work to be done, but as we continue our efforts to strengthen foundational instruction, provide developmentally appropriate formative assessments for early literacy and numeracy, and invest in reading and literacy, I’m confident we’ll see Georgia continuing to move in the right direction.”
