Barely Passing English

Say what you will about the No Child Left Behind Act, any way you look at it, the fact that only 61 percent of Anne Arundel County 10th graders passed the new Maryland high school English test is distressing. Five of the twelve County high schools are on a watch list and labeled as needing improvement.

Here's how other location jurisdictions compared:

Howard County - 77%
Montgomery County - 70%
Calvert County - 69%
Frederick County - 67%
St. Mary's County - 60%
