Superintendent, Democrats react to A-F grades

The state released its first A-F school performance grades for all North Carolina schools today, and the results are a mix. More than two-thirds of schools got a C or better, but of that, most received a C with only a small percentage receiving an A.

About 28 percent of schools received a D or F, and most of those have a high percentage of low income students. 

Go here for a press release from the Department of Public Instruction and for access to the full reports.

Go here if you just want to see the grades.

Both State Schools Superintendent June Atkinson and Democratic lawmakers held press conferences today in reaction to the grades. See videos below.
