Judge Blocks Oklahoma's Sharia Law Ban

DemonstrationA federal judge has already blocked Oklahoma's new ban on Sharia law enforcement, which they voted into the state constitution last Tuesday. Stupid judge! Can't he see that encroaching Muslims forces are only miles away from capturing Tulsa?

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
