We continue our series of audio postcards
from Vermont towns with a visit to the Windham County
town of Londonderry. To tell our story, we’ve chosen a few transplants –
some more deeply rooted than others, but all engaged in activities that are
vital to the town.
Thirty percent of Vermont’s
11th graders scored proficiently in the math portion of this year’s
NECAP state assessment tests. We talk with the state’s Director of
Educational Assessment, Michael Hock, about the low scores. And we hear from math teachers about how math is taught in classrooms around the state. Also, we look at a new affordable housing report, and we bring you an audio postcard from Londonderry.
