Easy to 'recover' when the original bar was already so low.

In the details:

"In math, the state's rank jumped from dead-last 52nd to 40th while the average score on the test went up by less than a point, and
In reading, Alabama's rank rose from 49th to 39th, with the average score up by nearly 2 points."

So to be clear: This isn't them leading. This is them having gained the most relative to 28 other states, so they're finally not in dead-last.

The state is among the top 10 of states that either improved or lost the least amount of learning in math and reading.

So...If everyone else went from 99 to 80 (a net loss of 19) and Alabammy went from 75 to 60 (a net loss of 15)...Yay! We lost less learning than all them other states! Woo hoo!

I bet this is another population map made to sound exciting.

Nope, still ranked among the lowest.

I've killed fewer of your friends and family than I did last year.  Give me credit, or I can go back to trying for the new record.

I guess when you allow kids back in school it has an effect. Remote learning was just a sham to keep paying teachers.

It doesn't show that at all. Hawaii schools were closed longer than just about anywhere else in the nation, and the kids scores went up. The difference was that when the schools closed they handed out laptops to everybody, and made sure all the kids had good internet access. If kids couldn't get access they let them back in school to work from there. My daughter stayed online the entire time. She completed algebra 1 and geometry, and is doing just fine now in algebra 2.

Yes but we'd have colonies on Mars by now if it wasn't for that decision. There's a constant low-level brain drain on the scientists from the rest of the state. If you listen closely on a still winter evening in rural Madison county you can hear a gentle whooshing sound as fragments of IQ are dispersed across the landscape like cottonwood pollen during a summer breeze.

I learned a fun fact from the NY Times brain teasers the other day. Only one state does not have the letter A, N, or O in its name. (That one.)
