Louisiana (NBC33) — A report released by the Department of Education shows more Louisiana students are at the basic grade level of education.
The report says 68 percent of our children are at that basic level, which is up eight points from 2008, and two points over the past year.
That means about 10,000 more kids in Louisiana are at grade level.
The study shows big gains in EBR Parish.
According to the report, East Baton Rouge Parish schools saw a three percent increase in students performing at grade level over the past year.
The report shows a 13 percent increase in students performing at that level over the past four years.
