Absolutely! I agree with you. My comments were just that the results appear to be terrible, but no one takes into account the special education population who should either be taking a different test or not be taking the test at all. Some of these children simply cannot perform the way other children can.
They should not be taking the test at all. There is a reason why it is called special education..........

Why is Propel able to do a better job for less money per child?

Can I speculate that the teacher's union has a hidden agenda to bring propel teachers into their union? This will stop the embarrassment.

Propel success debunks that excellent teaching does not equate to teacherís inflated salaries and generous pensions.

The solution is simple. The Achilles heel of the teachers union -- Vouchers for every student. Test grade averages will skyrocket.

"One exception to the pattern appears to be the charter school Propel McKeesport, where 85 percent of the students qualify for free lunches and 73 percent are minorities and yet their scores exceeded the state's targets and rivaled those of some affluent districts.

At Propel McKeesport, 76.5 percent of students scored proficient or above in reading and 94.6 percent in math. The percentages were close to the same for white students and African-American students."
