Again Thank you Mary for reversing the vote and looking into what consequences the school board is potentially getting into.

First thank you Mary for reversing your vote.

Second I saw some garbage in the News-Press today that the state requires 195 tests per year.

It makes me wonder if that figure is like the student population figures. Possibly inflated.

I bet the curriculums in the school have the students taking 6 maybe 7 courses a semester.

So if we say there are two semesters 195 becomes 99 in the fall, 97 in the spring.

Assuming 6 courses a semester that comes to 16 per course per semester.

Figuring the student attend 180 days or 36 weeks,18 weeks per semester.

What your seeing is about ONE TEST per week per course to reinforce what has been taught.

I bet most oaf those tests don't take a full day, class or 30 minutes figuring some may just be QUIZES.

Anyone beginning to see why the education system is so screwed up or why the United States has dropped #1 to a place where not quite 3rd world countries resided.
