Paula Wright wrte an op-ed about it here: http://www.jacksonville.com/opinion/20180513/guest-column-state-may-impose-new-unfair-testing-requirements
The school board has asked the community to get involved and ask the State Board of Education not to change the rules.
Well Anna Brosche and the city council got on board and passed a resolution asking the state Board of Education to keep things the way they are.
This is a great thing because often the city council seems tone deaf to the plight of the school district. The city council should be applauded for stepping up and joining the school board in asking the BOE not to change the concordant scores and to eliminate the PERT test.
Unfortunately mayor Lenny Curry had a different idea and refused to sign the resolution and sent a rather snotty letter to council president Brosche when dong so.
