New York will change what it takes for students to reach proficiency on state math and English language arts tests, calling last years lower scores the new normal.
A scoring committee that reports to the Board of Regents said Monday that they must take into account the results of last years tests for students in grades three through eight to determine whether schools are showing improvement from year to year. On Thursday, the committee wanted to clarify that they must also reset scores because the tests will have new performance standards.
Mike Rivero: Education is failing our students, teaching gender pronouns, critical race theory, and how to twerk, instead of math, science, literature, etc. So to save face, they just lower the testing standards so they can claim education is working!
