Wisdom Of Crowds

I’m in meetings most of this week and haven’t had time to dig into the numbers on this Times story about a school in CT that didn’t make “adequate yearly progress” but it seems like something doesn’t add up.   Based on the article shouldn’t the school should have made sufficient progress via “safe harbor” under the law unless they also missed other targets like student participation in assessments that the article doesn’t address?  Readers, sort this out!

  1. The story talks about improvements by third-graders, but not other grades. I’m guessing that despite those gains, other grades didn’t meet the safe harbor requirements. That’s just one opinion from one education reporter.

  2. My guess is that a subgroup failed to make the growth needed to hit AYP or qualify for “safe harbor.”
