As usual the headline writers are screwed up, but did the author check the goals before writing this recap.

The actual goals from Delaware RTTT grant:

Our progress is STARTLINGLY poor. And by startling, I mean right in line with expectations of professionals and practitioners outside Dover and Rodel and Vision. DOE, the Governor and many DE pols: spin baby spin.

  1. I don’t think those goals would be impossible to hit. The top ten states all are within that parameter. To get there, all we have to do is go with an 11:1 student teacher ratio in our schools that have over 50% on free lunch..

  2. I have grown so weary of the New Journal. This article and yesterday’s are reason enough for me to doubt anything they print. Honestly, I don’t think Albright does any investigating. I’m guessing that every bit of information in that article came straight from Dover.
    And yesterday’s “Teacher Evals..” stating that teachers are “keenly interested” in scores because of bonuses and career advancement is so far from the truth it borders on satire.
