This is just perfect analysis! am sharing this with facebook http://www.sampleassessments.com/reading-assessments.html

Interesting, but ignores some other data that might explain what's going on. The relative wealth of the community (measured perhaps by the inverse of the percent eligible for free or reduced lunch) might explain why WA is above the curve. I would want to look at the specific states to draw any real conclusions, but coming to the conclusion that we should have more local funding would not necessarily be useful. Does the local funding measure CAUSE the improvement in scores?
