Magnet scores vary in LA

Parents shopping for a magnet school in Los Angeles may not be able to compare test scores, because so many magnet programs housed on larger campuses don’t report their test scores separately. Now parents can check a map of magnet school test scores, provided by the LA Times.

Scores vary greatly with the gifted programs, not surprisingly, leading the pack. Among the programs with abysmal math scores and very poor English scores is the Teacher Training Magnet at troubled Crenshaw High.

  1. Wow, this will play into the belief that “those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.”

    We teachers add one of two endings to that:

    Those who can’t teach, coach
    and
    Those who can’t teach, go into administration.

    (It’s supposed to be a joke, coach.)

  2. “Among the programs with abysmal math scores and very poor English scores is the Teacher Training Magnet at troubled Crenshaw High.”

    Sigh.

  3. The math score for Hollywood Performing Arts Magnet bolsters my belief that we shouldn’t elect actor/politicians and expect any kind of balanced budget for California either.

  4. Well, the actual rock bottom scores were at the Police Magnet. Sigh.
