    Test Scores / Public Education

    A new study from the Pennsylvania State Education Association suggests there's a link between standardized test scores and funding for public education. In a three year period starting with the 2010-2011 academic year, the study says test scores for third through 5th graders declined, with the largest budget cuts coming in school districts with the highest levels of poverty. A state Education Department Spokesman dismisses the report, citing its use solely of standardized test scores to measure achievement.
