via Twubs

A2 I honestly don’t know and would love to hear others give insight into this tonight. I’ve heard we’re not losing $$$ statewide

via Twubs

A1 It seems a bit odd that a higher education state group had responsibility for certifying our K12 standards meet C3…

via Twubs

A1 my understanding is we lost the NCLB waiver b/c our state officials didn’t make the case that PASS meets C3 rigor / guidelines
