I have seen the occaisional list that P refers to.  Can't find a handy one, though.

Here is the Federal Governments lists, a bit confusing and only with data about 4th and 8th grades.   I think that it is safe to say that most of the core learning is done by 8th grade anyway.

Clicky here

you will find an interactive chart where you can click here and there and find comparisons to national averages and whatnot.  It is of itself rather meaningless without digging deeper to find the actual rankings list.  To go deeper, you must double click on a state to get to here

Pick any state, it doesn't matter it is the only way to get to the meaningful stuff.
Under the map you will find a chart that gives rankings by grade and subject and to the very end of the row is a button that says compare.  It looks like it is grayed out and not active, but it is, click on it.

You should end up here  (upon testing of the links, it returns you to the one above, so you must double click on the state to get to the next step)

Once again the map is meaningless.  Look right above the map and you will find a link to Stat Comparison Table.  Click on it.

Finally, you will reach a table in a new window with numerical listings from top to bottom.  All the states will be there.  You will have to hit compare on each 8th grade line item to find out each states ranking for that particular subject. 

Its a real pain in the butt to get the info, but it is there.  If anyone knows a better way or link, by all means, please share it.


 
Thanks

  • In a poll conducted by SoonerPoll.com, 49 percent of voters polled stated that they were for the measure. The poll surveyed likely registered voters in the state, which included 385 Democrats, 340 Republicans and 31 independents. The margin of error was reported to be 3.57 percentage points and was commissioned by the Tulsa World.<9>
Date of Poll Pollster In favor Opposed Undecided Number polled
July 16-21, 2010SoonerPoll.com49%24%27%755

Two measures aimed at illegal immigration received even greater approval. State Question 751, which would make English the state's official language, was favored by 85 percent; SQ 746, to require photo identification to vote, was favored by 83 percent.

And


State Question 755 has received national attention, and Duncan has been interviewed about the proposal by several national news outlets.

However, the proposal appeared less controversial among Oklahoma legislators. House Joint Resolution 1056 passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 82-10 vote and cleared the Senate on a bipartisan 41-2 vote.

Duncan has predicted the measure will receive similar overwhelming support from voters. Recent polling indicates the measure will pass, although many citizens remain uncertain. A poll conducted July 16 to 21 for The Tulsa World found that 49 percent of likely voters supported State Question 755, while 24 percent opposed it and 27 percent were undecided.

Just heard on the radio, no not Rush, that the US State Department has submitted Arizona's 1070 to the United Nations for review for possible Human Rights violations.  WTF ?

This is an internal affair undergoing an internal Constitutional review. 



 
Great.  Just great.
