My daughter's high school sent a letter around explaining that she is now in a "failing" school. Under the provisions of NCLB, a school must show at least 7.5% improvement over last year's scores. Presumably, they must score 7.5% better every year until 100% of their students are above average.
Does anybody understand how this is supposed to work?
I'm pretty cynical about the whole thing. But then I've always had a poor attitude toward high school.
