So now we have confirmation of what has been reported on this blog for a while. In 2013, 38 out of 105 students failed all or a portion of the MCAS. That’s over 1/3 of this year’s seniors.
Worse than that, these students went the whole of their junior year without being offered the opportunity to retake the test.
The fact is that this has never happened here before. I have to wonder if this has ever happened anywhere before.
The Superintendent devoted a great deal of effort to emphasizing the administration’s commitment to “transparency”. We could have covered this up, swept it under the rug, she noted. Really?!? Just how would you have done that after it was reported here?
Is there any end to this?
Really, now is the time for the State to step in.
