“Somehow, 98 percent of teacher evaluations suggest we accomplished that, even though school grades dropped statewide … That’s not to say our students or our schools are failing. Far from it. It does show that one critical tool for improvement has not yet worked the way it should.”
Here is a no brainer … maybe it is not the teachers or the students.
Maybe, just maybe, it is the test? Hmmm?
If you got a ticket for driving 100 mph on a highway and you know you were only going 60 … you would go to court and the officer would have to show proof of maintaining and calibrating his radar.
I want to check Pearson’s radars (woops, I mean tests). Don’t you?
Florida parents … call, write FL DOE today. Ask to see your child’s tests and answers. You have the right. I bet you will find the answer you are looking for.
After all, the only growth Pearson Test Corporation is measuring is the growth of their profits. #ChaChing
