SEATTLE (AP) — Washington public school students are doing about as well on state tests as they have done over the past few years.

But many more schools in Washington state are failing to make adequate yearly progress, according to federal education rules.

During a news conference on Wednesday, Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn called those federal requirements crazy. He said it wasn’t fair that Washington schools have to pay the price for rules that should be changed by Congress.

More than 1,900 schools out of about 2,200 in Washington are labeled as failing in 2014.

But there also was some good news in Dorn’s report: more than 90 percent of the students in the class of 2014 passed the tests they needed to graduate.
