OTHER OPINION: SCHOOLS
Back-to-school season arrives with the hope and possibilities of a new academic year, but it can also bring feelings of dread as communities brace for test results measuring adequate yearly progress, or AYP.
The MCA statewide exams that determine the federally required AYP are expected to be released soon. Last year, just more than half of the state’s 2,000 schools and 297 of 340 districts were “failing” by AYP standards. The new results likely won’t be any better.
