I heard about her "announcement" Back earlier this year, I posted about the fact the legislature made a deal with the Liuar in Chief to not count negatively towards a school or NM, seniors who do not pass the SBA, until they graduate. Since you can't graduate until you get the SBA, it's an easy fix. What'll you bet it goes up, just as ISPAC predicted, because she lied outright?

Does she ever tell the truth?

I tried downloading the .xls, and it will not load. I'm sure it's gamed, too.

"Under the bill “a student who has completed the course requirements for high school graduation in the 2011-2012 school year may graduate without demonstrating competence in required subject areas on the standards-based assessment or assessments or a portfolio of standards-based indicators”. Thus, no SBA exams were administered to twelfth-graders for the 2011-2012 school year.

Under NMSA 1978 Section 22-13-1.1, which details graduation requirement for New Mexico seniors, item (M) states that students are required to demonstrate competency in standards-based assessment or assessments in order to receive a New Mexico high school diploma.

Whether eliminating these pre-graduation standards-based assessment tests would alter the graduation rate is something that would require access to and evaluation of extensive education records. However, it is logical that not every student who scores D’s in classwork would necessarily demonstrate competency in standards-based assessment exams. "

So, they don't count the failures anymore, if you graduate, despite the fact the test is being administered just for that reason. So, smoke and mirrors, all over again. Governor stil lcan't do the job.

BTW, Skandera works and still receives a check from the corporation you can get okayed for a course you did nto complete, by taking their online course, and still graduate, despite being unable to pass the test to prove it.

"Hookerr-based" classwork.

government schools are bruck. 40% of graduates couldn't pass the GED. it is mandatory. teachers will always teach to the standardized tests. the reason the GED is harder is it isn't fact based memorization. no wonder more people are homescrooling.

Wherein neither side understands that education is cultural and spiritual, and not hog tied by political and monetary money grubbing.
