Part of the reason school play this stupid game, lowering the bar to "help" kids earn their diplomas, is the price the schools pay if they don't meet certain standards.
I have jumped through the school improvement grant phase, the title I phase. Both with all the requirements the state can add to a burdensome workload.
Now our governor has set up another hurdle. If a district does not meet the state's standards, the state will step in and take it over.
Yep, ought to work well.
Did I mention that it has been almost a decade since the state funded the schools to the amount they are required to by law?
That couldn't possibly affect anything.
