To quote from the September 9th press release from the Washington
Superintendent of Public Instruction:

Mathematics: Girls and boys are achieving at the same level across grades.

Reading: Girls score higher than boys in all grades. Scores for boys
in grades 4 and 7.
Writing: Girls score much higher than boys in all grades.

With the recent debate over single sex education, it is important to keep
mind states like Washington that are opposed to providing effective
arts instruction to male students.
