I am sure Richmond officials will have plenty of promises tomorrow about how they will do better next time. But because I remembered the promises they made last year about how they would do better this year, I just didn't have the stomach to listen to their lies and excuses today -- especially after I saw that Henderson Middle School had a 7 percent pass rate for 7th grade math, the exact same score they had last year.
To understand why I am so disgusted, read my posting from Oct. 4, 2012 titled: The Seen, the Unseen and the Obscene, that follows the chart. And, follow this link:

to view his excellent charts that document this educational disaster.
