OK I really don't understand. WE are excellent with Distinction. We meet State standards and only 50% of the schools in this State are rated this high or Excellent.Our best score was 1 child in 7 could write at a C grade level or better, 14% of that class.
Our steady decline down to 1 child in 50 who can write at a C grade level or better, 2% of that class, is simply unacceptable.
Viewing these statistics makes me wonder what Mr. Malone is doing to his course of studies to address this massive failure of our system. This failure in the ability of our students to write coherently has been documented each year since 2005.
When the opportunity arose to come up with new classes for children last January, Mr. Malone opted for a guitar class and a current events class.
How do we look our children in the face and tell them we are preparing them for college if we accept such results year after year and do nothing.
Pleeese don't tell me the State standards are lower than a snake belly.
