Despite the interruption, there is at least a little bit of good news coming out of Georgia schools this year. For the third year in a row, Georgia students performed better than the national average on the SAT, with a mean score of 1043 – 13 points higher than the national mean.
“The class of 2020 has faced unprecedented adversity and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “Given all they have overcome, I am so proud of these students for becoming the third graduating class in Georgia history to beat the national average on the SAT. I continue to be optimistic about the future of Georgia public schools as our students, teachers, and schools continue to surpass expectations and outperform their peers nationally.”
