Saw an interesting proposal to use the 4th grade and 8th grade tests to establish a plus or minus factor in math and reading to grade schooling by state.
Delaware's line looked like this:
Math 05-09 Reading 05-09
4th 8th diff 4th 8th diff

DE 3 14 -11 11 17 -6

So Delaware's total rank would be minus 17 indicating a good deal of lost ground. Rankings are against other states plus DOD schools and DC.
