  •  All children in AZ have to be tested and as far (2+ / 0-)

    as I know, their scores are included.  This is why some schools here are "under performing" if they have a high number of non English  speakers or children with special needs.  Some schools here will do their best to "out source" kiddos like this to keep their scores up.

    I know, that sucks but this is one reason why I despise Standardized tests as a measure of children's actual knowledge, teacher performance and a school's success.

    Our educational system is broken in so many ways. There is no quick fix and trying to blame teachers or parents is not the answer.
