>>"...The Business Roundtable, the prestigious group of corporate CEOs that
lobbied for years for school accountability, has sent advisory letters to
education groups and media outlets urging them not to say schools are "failing"
when they fail to meet annual yearly progress targets.
>>"We worried that it wouldn't be plausible to the American people, if the
majority of the schools in the United States are all declared failures," said
Susan Traiman, director of the Roundtable's education initiative. The Roundtable
is working with U.S. Department of Education officials to find ways to eliminate
some of the problem regulations contained in the rating system, Traiman said.
Truly one of the irony-impaired, Ms. Traiman. She should not suffer alone.
Seems simple to me. Just move all of Delaware's subgroups to those
'segregated' areas in PA.
For that matter, why just PA? Each segregated state could take TURNS
hosting the low-performing subgroups from diverse states, in an interstate
exchange program. It could be like the MX System, only for education.
I expect, however, that the shell game will be statistical rather than
-- Cathy, CFJWE (Certified John-Wayne-Econometrician), with LOTS of
proposals for how Delaware can re-aggregate, re-average, re-define,
re-inflate, re-populate, re-mediate, re-report and re-configure their
schools and performances. If we can't get those poor folks a good, oh, 150%
pass rate, then we ain't doing our jobs.
