One would think that as students grow and move up in their schooling they would perform better with schoolwork and testing. They are used to the way things are done so by the time they hit high school they should be at their peak performance right? Wrong. Test scores from high schools around the country were released this Wednesday that showed that the students in the higher grades are performing worse than those in the lower ones.

The National Assessment of Education Progress compared test results from 2005 and 2013. They found that students scored an average of 153 out of 500 on the math portion of the test in 2013.
