The Jacksonville Public Education Fund’s horrible policy ideas.
A couple weeks ago the JPEF advocated for schools to get VAM scores like teachers do.
Well friends even though the Times Union would have you believe VAM scores needed to be released so people can see for themselves how bad they are, people have known how bad they are and would be almost as soon as the state came up with the idea to use them.
VAM scores over the last week has made Florida’s education system laughing stock of the country and the JPEFs major poicy suggestion to improve things it to use VAM scores to grade schools. The JPEF, little more than a mouthpiece for Gary Chartrand and his horrible ideas, should stick to what they are good at and it is not policy.
