Texas school ratings show improvement compared to 2019, but those in poorer neighborhoods still lag
According to the school ratings released by the Texas Education Agency, the number of schools that received the highest rating increased from 2019. Schools are rated A-C based largely on STAAR test results. Almost half of Texas schools received a B, while 7% were labeled “not rated”. Of those labeled “not rate”, over half of them were high-poverty schools. Results show large gains in reading and smaller improvements in math.
