Georgia public schools just had their worst performance in four years, based on an “Adequate Yearly Progress” report that is part of the federal No Child Left behind program.
The Muscogee County School District performed below that state average.
Only 69 percent of state schools made AYP, compared to 82 percent last year.
In Muscogee County, only 62.5 percent made AYP, compared to 81.5 percent last year. Only 35 of the district’s 56 schools passed muster.
