You failed to name one single rule that SWCS violated.
My father, may he rest in peace, had a phrase for people like you. He would say that "you know enough to be dangerous but not enough to help."
You continue to rant about things you know very little about. Your statements are far more than ignorant and they damage you and your reputation.
You offer no support for any of your claims.
"Value added measure = to HGH use." - HGH is used before a cheater performs. Value Added is determined after test data is analyzed.
"Excellent rating = the wind blowing." - Makes no sense what so ever.
"Performance Index = the extra head start." Again, a head start happens at the beginning and Pervormance index is measured at the end.
"13 of 16 is failure." 13 of 16 is 81%, far from failure. I assume you meant to type "13 of 26." I agree that it is not very good and needs improvement.
"The educational system is full of cheating behavior." - A misguided opinion. You've provided no evidence at all.
"Why has education failed to improved for 25 years?" - Again, your own misguided, unsupported opinion.
"Oh!! and why is our remediation rate at 50%." - One reason is that the way remediation rate is measured has serious flaws that make it look worse than it really is.
"Your ignorant statements do nothing but damage children." - How does anything I say damage children? Offer some proof. Don't just run your mouth.
"The educational cult has got to be dealt with." - You have never offered any suggestions for improving education. What would you do and how would it improve anything?
You need to stop drinking the kool-aid.

The general lack of progress for K-12 students—flat scores, persistent achievement gaps, falling high school graduation rates—does not stem from a lack of resources going into education. These have grown steadily. A more likely culprit is an outmoded district system of school governance that lacks genuine results-based accountability.

Schools have a large effect on young people’s ability to prepare for higher
education, the workforce, citizenship, and a fulfilling personal life. Schools are effective to the extent that they successfully teach young people the skills and subject matter that are necessary for these roles. Numerous reports produced by the U.S. Department of Education and by international agencies have shown that American students do not learn as much as they should or, in subjects where there is comparative data, as much as their peers in other nations. Therefore, if we wish to ensure that the largest possible number of young people is enabled to contribute to our society, then we must improve student achievement.

You harm the future of our children with your B.S.

Who is really drinking the kool aid?

You offer no suggestions for improvement. You regurgitate the same old, worn-out, anti-
education babble that does not solve any of its problems.

You harm the future of our children with your B.S.
