Schools Are Doing Well

I posted the following on a message board. What do you think?

I don’t understand why people think WA schools are failing. ACT and SAT scores are up (and above the national average) even with ever more students tested each year.

We still have kids entering the best schools in the nation and earning the highest of awards.

Schools are more diverse than ever, have more special education students than ever (the numbers are increasing rapidly here), and have more ELL students than ever. And still the scores climb.

Areas of affluence perform better than areas of poverty. It’s the same around the nation.

Schools reflect their communities.
