As pointed out by a brilliant commenter on Kilroy’s Delaware, Eastside Charters huge “gains” aren’t as transparent as we originally thought. This criteria was based on a 2010-2011 3rd grade class of 62 students compared to the same class which only had 29 students in the 2012-2013 year. How in the hell can you compare the two? You can’t. How do we know some of the lower scoring DCAS students didn’t choice out or leave the school for some reason? Someone has some explaining to do….
More bogus claims from the DOE and Markell to justify the priority schools. And reported by Matthew Albright with the News Journal a few times, including a huge article today. And the governor says comparing schools is making excuses… Stop the madness Markell. Your comments are being exposed for the fraud they are every single day!!!!! People are going to start wondering why you are pushing so damn hard on this a week and a half before January 7th.
