Fewer Richmond County students must retake the state's CRCT, according to results released this evening.

Richmond County released results showing improvements on all required tests except fifth-grade reading.

Third-, fifth- and eighth-graders must pass the required portions of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests to automatically move to the next grade.

Despite the improvements, math continued to be a problem. In eighth- grade 49.1 percent of students failed to pass, according to preliminary results.

Parents need to become more

Parents need to become more involved in their child's school work. Richmond County could have much better CRCT results if there was more involvement. When only 50.9 percent of the students passed the 8th grade math portion, that is a HUGE red flag. What is going to happen when they have to pass the exit exam from high school, which includes math? We have got to stop shuffling these kids along and get to the root of the problem.

Privatize the schools, stop

Privatize the schools, stop training kids to pass a test. Children are individuals with different needs kid to kid. This generic government education is killing this country. Why only half a semester of government class, but 12 years of english? No personal economics classes teaching daily finance? This is why we have adults with bad credit that think the constitution allows the governtment to run car companies.....

My daughter is a 6th grade

My daughter is a 6th grade straight A student and I do work with my child in her studies but I have found that alot of the material isn't covered during the school year that is on the CRCT. The material is being skimmed over the month before CRCT. While parents do have to do their part at home, it would help to have the work covered more in depth at school. It would also help to have the kids that obviously aren't at school to learn be dealt with. While I was visiting my child's class one day, I witnessed a child not knowing what 8 divided by 8 was. Now what is wrong with that picture? "This is the 6th grade" not 1st grade!!
