What does medical tests have to do with MCAS., your comparing apples to oranges.
Sorry for the poor analogy. I had wished to make the point that MCAS could/should be used as an indicator of how well the patient (school district) is doing (similiar to the medical tests).

If your child's x-ray revealed a possible tumor or his or her temperature was 103F, would you take corrective action or at least try to understand what's going on? Not getting periodic checkups doesn't solve anything. However, MCAS is indicating that something is dreadfully wrong at NM but we're guilty of ignoring it.

Oh so the election system is also flawed,I see. You all sure do have a lot of things to fix. The administration, the uninformed voters who live in fantasy world, the MCAS scores. How do you even sleep at night with all those worries! Please....

<quoted text> Let's also get rid of annual physical examinations, blood pressure monitors, taking temperatures and x-rays while we're at it? We can simply enjoy seeing the majority of our students on the honor roll. That's ample evidence that everything is peachy keen at North Middlesex, right? If the diploma and grades are "bogus" you might wake up to this as early as first semester in college?(maybe)
Hmm comparing MCAS to medical tests, now that's interesting and it makes no sense at all!

You can quote all the data and statistics you want. Mr. Silva won the seat by vote.

Well then I hope you spoke to the teacher and insisted that those bogus points be removed from your child's average;I am sure the teacher could have used a good laugh!Just a quick laugh though since we would not want to interupt too much instructional time with fun- it might effect their MCAS score!
