Since when does being on a school board constitute "no professional ties
to education?" AAARRRGGGHHH! Guess you just can't possibly know what

Subject: [arn-l] The Ed Week Virginia debate goes on and on
Now former Board of Ed president Schroder weighs in to the serial letter
Standards, ExamTo the Editor:I read with amusement and disbelief the
letter <A HREF="http://edweek.org/ew/ewstory.cfm?slug=37letter.h22#va"
"Virginia's Test Gives No Aid to At-Risk,"</A> published in your May 21,
issue, from Mickey VanDerwerker, a member of the Bedford County, Va.,
and an education consultant. The letter alleged that Virginia's strong
continued gain in its Standards of Learning program is not supported by
student- achievement indicators, such as national test results.
Ms. VanDerwerker has worked hard to gain media attention as someone with
seemingly no professional ties to the public education system. She
criticizes Virginia's SOL program.
