The state Board of Education released North Carolina’s Public School report cards for the 2015-16 year at its Thursday meeting.
Almost one-third (32.7%) of schools earned an A or a B, while just under quarter were labelled with a D or an F.
The data continues to show a strong correlation between the poverty level of a school and the grade it receives. A disproportionate number of schools that earned a D or an F on this year’s report card had poverty levels above 90%.Compare that in the chart below to schools that earned A’s and B’s.
