Good news from the New York Times! The newspaper of record noted earlier this month, "Students' Test Scores Show Slow but Steady Gains at Nation's Schools." It seems that 60 percent of American fourth-graders showed a minimal reading competence! If that's not cause for celebration, try this: 78 percent of 13-year-olds can add, subtract, multiply, and divide! That's up from 75 percent in 1990!
