HARTFORD, Conn. –Connecticut’s high school seniors from the class of 2013 ranked among the highest in the nation for both reading and math, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress report released Wednesday.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy praised the results Wednesday at the state Board of Education meeting where he spoke about the ability of students and the state to improve on Connecticut’s worst-in-the-nation achievement gap. But he warned that progress would be fleeting if the state didn’t stay committed to improving education.

“We need to remain committed to supporting teachers who are working hard in their classrooms across Connecticut, and put our students on a road to success,” Malloy said.

Of the 13 states that participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), Connecticut ranked the highest in reading and ranked in the top tier, along with Arkansas, Idaho, West Virginia and New Jersey, for math.
