At Lansing's Woodcreek Magnet School, this years' MEAP scores have been something to celebrate.

Between 15 to 18 percent, we made gains in reading, writing, and math," explains Principal Rita Cheek.

Though not in the same percentages, an increase is true for most of the elementary schools in the Lansing School District.

Though they're still below state objectives, they are making gains.
They scored 70 percent in English, a 73 percent in Math; in both categories, that represents nearly a 20 percent improvement over four years.

Generally, elementary school scores were good, according to the state.

The trouble seems to come, statewide and especially in the Lansing, at the middle school level. There, scores fall dramatically, especially in math.

………………………………ENGLISH………MATH
LANSING……………………….58…………….44
STATE PERFORMANCE………73…………….63

DIFFERENCE……………………15…………...19

The middle school scores are off the state objective 15 percent in English, 19 percent in Math.

"They will be under my microscope," Dr. E. Sharon Banks says of Lansing's middle schoolers. "We are better than that."
