Of course the rooster would crow all day and night if the scores were out the roof, but who is to say--tests can be "doctored" to "look good" don't forget two generations back we took no tests and we produced some very impressive professional leaders from our schools. A lot of our leaders came from one room schools. One hundred years from now it won't make any difference and we will all be in our graves. Take it or leave it. it is what it is. P.S. most of the teachers in our school system came from that very school, are they inadequate?The test books2read was talking about is Kentucky's test scores from 2011-2012. You can check any county.
I agree partially. Our students are just as smart as those in the next district. Our teachers are just as good as the teachers in the next district. Our teachers are being constantly reminded about test scores but are they really being told what they need to do to improve test scores? I'm sure they are frustrated and feel like they're just spinning their wheels. Is our administration going out and finding out what they should be doing and sharing it with the teachers?
I can tell you right now, I'd rather have my children attending a school that has test scores at the top than at the bottom and I'd think most sensible people would.

When the school takes 1/2 a day to tell the students how to take the test.This is just crazy.And,the students were told if the didn't do good on this test,the state would come in and fire all the teachers.And hire new ones.Why tell the students this?

Because the public schools depend on the government for funds, therefore some idiots in Frankfort run the whole thing. Get the ones who started this and jerk their ears open, they get paid to make a mess. Threatening students indeed. Private schools are not encumbered with these issues. Are there really that many extra teachers who would take the place of those now in? I think not, sounds like a trumped up "I dare you". They have a union you know, tenure, etc. Big talk for little a little regime.
