So the new SAT scores are out. After increasing per-student spending more 40 percent since the mid-1990s, SAT scores are exactly where they stood then. It’s hard to know whose getting the worst deal, our kids or our taxpayers. To make matters worse, our SAT scores are falling even further behind the rest of the nation.
The Dallas Morning News is reporting Texas’ SAT scores this year came in at 993 — 505 in math and 488 in reading — out of a top score of 1600. The national average is 515 for math and 502 for reading, or 1017 overall.
