Number of High-Poverty, High-Performance Schools Is Growing

The Texas-based research group Children At Risk has recently released its annual public school ratings. An increasing number of gold-ribbon (high-poverty, high-performance) schools are located in the Rio Grande Valley.

“In certain areas of the state, we are seeing more of these high-poverty, high-performing schools, and that’s really good news because that is a majority of our school population in Texas,” said Bob Sandborn, president and CEO of Children At Risk.

Sanborn sheds additional light on the ratings in an audio interview. Listen to “The Number of High-Poverty, High-Performance Schools Is Growing in Texas,” on the Texas Standard website.
