UPDATE: Good news and bad news for Little Rock schools. The district's scores continue to lag behind statewide scores by up to 23 percentage points, but test scores are up over last year in 9 out of 12 categories. The weak spot seems to be middle-school literacy: Scores for sixth and seventh grades dropped slightly, while eighth-grade scores stayed the same.
