2001 API Data
Home ] Up ]

 

Below are two spreadsheets. 

The first spreadsheet shows the 2001 API scores for the top elementary schools and high schools in Los Angeles County.  The Beverly Hills Schools are highlighted in red. 

The second spreadsheet shows the approximate expenditures per student for the 1999-2000 year.

As before, it appears that Beverly Hills is spending far more, but getting less, than comparable Districts in Los Angeles County.  Now, the Board wants to embark on a $90 million construction spree, which contains more waste than substance and which will distract everyone from the indisputable fact that the test scores reflect an unacceptably low level of basic academic achievement.  More money might help, but only if it was used for more teachers or better use of computers.  The key focus should be education.  Education will not be improved by artificial turf, luxury offices for administrators, or classrooms stuffed onto already overcrowded campuses just so we can bring in more out of District students.

No one on the Board or the staff seems willing to admit that these scores are reason for grave concern.  So what if kids from comparable Districts are doing better in math, English, science, history, etc.  We are going to have artificial turf and Taj Mahal level buildings.
