Do government schools create grade inflation to hide deficiencies

Vouchers Found to Lower Test Scores in Washington Schools

An Education Department study found that students who switched to private schools under the system had lower results than their peers, but found their new schools safer by a large margin.
I suspect the lower grades are caused by the inadequate education they were getting at their previous school.  As someone whose parents moved around a lot when I was in school, I sometimes found that the material in the new school was ahead of where it was in my previous school requiring me to catch up with the rest of the students.  The safer learning environment is also likely to lead to better results in the long run and less likelihood of dropping out.
