Just over half of pupils between third and sixth grade of elementary school are below the required level in mathematics and Spanish. Meanwhile, scarcely 20% of middle school pupils achieved good or excellent grades in both disciplines.

This fact was revealed by the results of the National Evaluation of Academic Attainment in Schools (Enlace) 2013, basic level – released by the Secretariat of Public Education last week. The test was taken by over 14,098,879 pupils between third and sixth grade of elementary school, and seventh to ninth grades in middle school, in 122,608 public and private schools around the country.

... The results show that in math achievement this year, just over half of children evaluated in elementary schools did not achieve a Good or Excellent level. While 48.8% placed high in these categories, 51.2% received an Insufficient or an Elementary score. However, compared with last year there has been a 4 percent rise, as in 2012 only 44.3% of pupils at this level obtained a good or excellent score.
