September 30, 2016 by cranky The Feds have just named seven Virginia schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools. They choose the schools based on performance on standardized tests or for “closing achievement gaps.”
Do you suppose the feds know that VDOE is lying to them about the SOL scores of our local high schools? Do you care that VDOE brokered this corrupt deal so the local Superintendents would let their bright kids go to MLW without lowering the SOLs of the local high schools? Do you wonder that VDOE manipulates other data (see this and this for some introductory examples; as soon as Bacon’s Rebellion gets its server back up, I’ll add some other links here)?
