The Hostile Takeover of Minnesota Education -by Allen Quist
Last fall, the Duluth News Tribune reported: Spring, 2022, the National Assessment of Educational Progress :
Results released Monday, Oct. 24, show Minnesota eighth-graders’ math test scores dropped by 11 points from 2019, placing the state among the 10 biggest drops in that age group nationally. No state reported gains in math performance for fourth- and eighth graders since the last assessment, and nearly all states, including Minnesota, saw reading scores drop.

While everyone is right to sound the alarm about these results, the charts below show academic achievement was declining well before 2019. Since the official narrative has been to blame these losses on Covid induced “distance learning” and “mental health,” they ignore what was going on before Covid. Notice that the academic achievement of Minnesota K-12 students was trending downward before the Covid-19 disruptions. Covid disruptions may have accelerated the academic decline somewhat, but they clearly were not the primary cause. “As US schools struggle, Minnesota eighth-grade math scores lowest in decades,’’ Duluth News Tribune, October 24, 2022 Minnesota’s 4th and 8th grade reading and math scores have been in serious decline for years. And even more disturbing, Minnesota’s declines are much worse than the national averages. Not only that, per pupil spending in MN has risen dramatically since 2015. Yet, there has been no improvement in test scores since 2015. Instead test scores continue to tank while spending continues to rise indicating an inverse relationship between per pupil spending and academic achievement. Something disastrous is happening in Minnesota public schools. What could it be?
