 Raimondo’s Statement on PARCC Results

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Governor Gina M. Raimondo today released the following statement
on the PARCC scores:
«As we continue to focus on growing the Rhode Island economy and preparing young
people for the challenging careers of the 21st-century, we have to develop and
support great schools and a world-class public education system. Today’s PARCC results
show that our scores are moving in the right direction, but I am not satisfied with
the results, and we cannot afford to take our foot off the gas. We have a great
deal of work ahead of us and we need to stay focused to ensure that every Rhode
Island student graduates from high school ready for college and career. We all have
a role to play. Our students work hard every day and our teachers and parents are
committed to their success. As we start a new school year, we must all recommit
to building a brighter future for every Rhode Island student.»
