Ouch!! Just saw the Melrose MCAS results. It's bad for all the children not learning in school.
After so many years of Melrose school 'improvement,' today's students are doing worse than any were before. They gave the teachers millions more dollars a year. The superintendent gives herself and her pet admins three million dollars a year. It's all been nothing but a show and a waste of taxpayer money. All the money spent on modular classrooms and learning commons and science labs and three new schools and Horace Mann renovations was all just expensive lipstick on the proverbial pig.
Just watch as the Super marches up her 'merry men and women" of dept heads to show in PowerPoint slide presentations just how well they manipulate the data to show us progress! Then Gerry Mroz will demonstrate, as he does each year, why their data is flawed!
Every year the superintendent says schools are doing wonderful things. When poor results become obvious, she says it's all under control, or she needs more money. Measures like AP scores, SAT scores and MCAS scores regularly tell a different story. Money won't make the schools better with the same smug attitude from the one in charge.
Lesson to be learned: Change the school superintendent . short of this nothing changes.Voices of truth
How did we do?
Really poor results
The residents paid money for these MCAS scores? More administration are drinking the drink.[RedWine]
Since Cindy and Margaret have left Malden the scores are so much higher in the city. This was mention from a SC person in Malden. Mayor Dolan was told not to hire the Duo by many sources. So you get what you paid for Dolan.[Info]
You are learning about Melrose they are still sweeping it under the carpet.
Does the school committee care?
Does the superintendent care?
The answer is ?
