Good Morning

Louisiana’s school performance scores will be released tomorrow. The Advocate’s Will Sentell reports on this year’s rating being the last to be graded on a “curve”.

Check the Wall Street Journal and Allysia Finley’s op-ed: “Why Black Colleges Need Charter Schools”. http://on.wsj.com/2h7t0Vs

Have a great week!


The Advocate
No more curve: School letter grades on Tuesday will be last of their kind
The policy, which morphed from two to four years, requires a curved system in how the state rates the effectiveness of about 1,400 schools. That means the highest-scoring schools would get an A and the other schools’ scores would be distributed proportionally. The distribution of schools rated A, B, C, D and F cannot change from year to year. But all that ends after the 2016-17 grades are announced on Tuesday at 11 a.m.
