Core academic classes include English, reading/language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, and geography.; Source: EDFacts/Consolidated State Performance Report, 2005-06: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/consolidated/index.html; Data Uploaded On: 09/29/2010
