1 - The state changes the scale every year to suit their political purposes. It is a moving target.
2 - School grades offer parents a false sense of security. Children at D and F schools can and do receive a good education.
3 - They are not "easily understandable" like this press release claims. The formula is complex and utilizes invalid and unreliable data.
4 - Scores are based on 3-6 hours worth of testing, not 180 days worth of work.
5 - We can predict a school's score by their socioeconomic status just as well as any manipulated, fraudulent formula. That should set of alarms for everyone who cares about ALL children receiving a free and appropriate education.
1 - #OptOut of high-stakes, standardized testing. Deny the state the data so they can not use it against our hard-working students and teachers.
2 - Vote for local and state representatives who want what's best for children, not their pocket book or political ambitions.
