"Results have to drive us."

Sounds like all 501 districts are drinking the Kool-Aid.

The reforms that have to take place are far more sweeping than any standards-based test can indicate.*Every* school district should have a vocational training center on campus or develop a regional profile of what drives a local area's economic engine of well paid jobs. The kind of thing that an economic stimulus should provide but won't because state and federal legislators want to just sit on the rearranged chairs on the deck of the Titanic.
